Not sure what you mean, "How to use"

tput rev  # Set reverse video on
tput rmso  # Clear reverse/bold options

`man tput` and `man terminfo` for more details

Hope this helps,

i mean using C programming, we use the escape \3m etc. to get the highlight, color, etc..
Any references on that?
The C routine 'curs_termcap(3CURSES)'  (and related routines) are available to improve program portability and save you having to write the escape codes directly.

If you have a terminal that's not supported under Solaris, you'll need to create your own termcap/terminfo entry (See /usr/share/lib/termcap for examples). You'll need the programmers manual for the terminal to get the actual escape sequences.  But most terminal emulations (Wyse, VT etc.) will be covered by the Curses libraries.

Thanks for posting your solution;  I see you've asked Community Support for a refund - I think the question should be saved in case anyone else has the same problem, so I suggest CS reduce the points to zero and close the question.

ok close and refund seems better.
Closed, 50 points refunded.

Thanks tfewster !
