       ul - Translates underlining for display on a terminal

       ul [-i] [-t terminal] [file...]

       The  ul command displays the named files (or standard input if none are
       given) with underlining shown as it would be on the printed page.

       Causes the ul command to indicate underlining by a separate  line  con‐
       taining	appropriate  - (dashes).  This is useful when you want to look
       at the underlining in formatted text output on a cathode ray tube (CRT)
       terminal.   Overrides  the  terminal kind specified in the environment.
       The terminfo database is read to determine  the	appropriate  sequences
       for  underlining.  If  the  terminal is incapable of underlining but is
       capable of a standout mode, then that mode is used instead. If the ter‐
       minal  can  overstrike,	or  handles underlining automatically, ul acts
       like the cat command, simply displaying data to	the  screen.   If  the
       terminal cannot underline, underlining is ignored.

       The  ul	command	 translates underscores to the sequence that indicates
       display underlining for the terminal in use, as specified by  the  TERM
       environment variable.
