       ul - do underlining

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

       ul  reads the named filenames (or the standard input if none are given)
       and translates occurrences of underscores to the sequence  which	 indi‐
       cates underlining for the terminal in use, as specified by the environ‐
       ment variable  TERM.  ul	 uses  the  /usr/share/lib/terminfo  entry  to
       determine the appropriate sequences for underlining. If the terminal is
       incapable of underlining, but is capable of a standout mode  then  that
       is used instead. If the terminal can overstrike, or handles underlining
       automatically, ul degenerates to cat(1). If the terminal cannot	under‐
       line, underlining is ignored.

       -t terminal
		      Override the terminal kind specified in the environment.
		      If  the  terminal	 cannot	 underline,   underlining   is
		      ignored. If the terminal name is not found, no underlin‐
		      ing is attempted.

		      Indicate	underlining  by	 a  separate  line  containing
		      appropriate  dashes `−'; this is useful when you want to
		      look at the underlining which is present in an  nroff(1)
		      output stream on a CRT-terminal.

       ul returns exit code 1 if the file specified is not found.


       cat(1), man(1), nroff(1), attributes(5)

       nroff  usually  generates  a series of backspaces and underlines inter‐
       mixed with the text to indicate underlining. ul makes attempt to	 opti‐
       mize the backward motion.
