Programs for controlling terminals
The Termutils package contains two programs, tput and tabs. tput is used in shell scripts to manipulate the terminal display, for example by clearing it or moving the cursor to a specific point, centering text or underlining text. tabs is used to specify and set hardware tab stops on terminals that support it.
