 Termcap / Terminfo problems

Dear Informix-4GL gurus,

What are the character strings that I must have set-up in order for the
boxes (windows and/or ring menus) to be displayed properly in an
Informix-4GL app?

Does it matter whether I use termcap or terminfo?

If I convert a termcap entry using captoinfo, will I lose some of the
Informix-related capabilities defined in the termcap entry?

I am well aware of the INFORMIXTERM, TERM, TERMCAP & TERMINFO envir
variables.  I simply need to know what are the strings to setup or better
yet working termcap/terminfo entries.

The specific terminals for which I need this are: vt100, vt220, IBM3151/3153
and DataGeneral terminals.

Thanks in advance,

Informix supply a Termcap file which you should find in $INFORMIXDIR/etc
If you look in this file you will find most of the well known TERMs already.
You could convert this to terminfo if you wanted, but I think you will find
that setting TERMCAP to point to this file works fine.

There's a good set of 'informix' termcap definitions at www.iiug.org
