Section B says:

         # Mailcap file for Bellcore lab 214.
         #
         # The next line sends "richtext" to the richtext
         program
         text/richtext; richtext %s; copiousoutput

         # Next, basic u-law audio
         audio/*; showaudio; test=/usr/local/bin/hasaudio
         #
         # Next, use the xview program to handle several image
         formats
         image/*; xview %s; test=/usr/local/bin/RunningX
         #
         # The ATOMICMAIL interpreter uses curses, so needs a
         terminal
         application/atomicmail; /usr/local/bin/atomicmail %s; \
             needsterminal
         #
         # The next line handles Andrew format,
         #   if ez and ezview are installed
         x-be2; /usr/andrew/bin/ezview %s; \
            print=/usr/andrew/bin/ezprint %s ; \

            copiousoutput
         #

         quoting
         application/*; echo "This is \"%t\" but \
            is 50 \% Greek to me" \; cat %s; copiousoutput

It should say:

Notes:

Some comment lines in the example termcap file appear to have improperly reformatted to fit the 78-character limit; the needed "# " was ommitted.

Section Appendix A says:

   The two characters "%s", if used, will be replaced by the name of a
   file for the actual mail body data.  In the case of the edit adn
   view-command, the body part will be passed to this command as
   standard input unless one or more instances of "%s" appear in the
   view-command, in which case %s will be replaced by the name of a file
   containing the body part, a file which may have to be created before
   the view-command program is executed.
