Terminal name entries
The first field in each PROTERMCAP terminal entry is the Name field. This field provides the names known for the terminal. The Name field contains one or more of the following components, separated by the pipe symbol ( | ):
*An abbreviation of the terminal's name
*The common name of the terminal
*Additional names for the terminal, if any
*A description of the terminal in which only the last name can contain blanks for readability (optional)
PROTERMCAP requires at least one of the name entries (1, 2, or 3, above) to be entered without spaces; the other two, and the description, are optional. See the following example:
