"I've been working with both termcap and terminfo for years now, and I was confident that I had a handle on them, but reading this remarkable little book gave me some valuable new insights into terminal setting in UNIX." --Root Journal, Sept/Oct 1990

"termcap & terminfo has been invaluable at explaining what all those strange characters mean in /etc/termcap. The real value of this one would come if I decided to build my own terminal type. I haven't done that, but the book has surely won back its purchase price by helping me add some flashy screen handling to simple shell scripts." --UNIX Today, Sep. 17, 1990
