NAME

       psfaddtable - add a Unicode character table to a console font


SYNOPSIS

       psfaddtable fontfile tablefile outfile


DESCRIPTION

       psfaddtable  takes  a console font in .psf format given by fontfile and
       merges it with the Unicode character table given by tablefile  to  pro-
       duce  a font file with an embedded character table, which is written to
       outfile.  An input file name of "-" denotes standard input, and an out-
       put  file name of "-" denotes standard output.  If the fontfile already
       contains an embedded character table, it is ignored.


TABLE FILE FORMAT

       Each line in the tablefile should be either blank,  contain  a  comment
       (preceded  by  #),  or  contain a sequence of numbers in either decimal
       (default), octal (preceded by 0), or hexadecimal (preceded by 0x)  for-
       mat,  separated by spaces or tabs.  The first number on each line indi-
       cates the glyph slot in the font that is being  referred  to,  this  is
       between  0  and  0xff  for  a  256-character font and 0 and 0x1ff for a
       512-character font.  Any subsequent numbers on the same line  are  Uni-
       codes matched by this specific glyph slot.  Instead of a single Unicode
       one may have a sequence of Unicodes separates by commas, to denote that
       the glyph depicts the corresponding composed symbol.  It is permissible
       to have multiple lines for the same glyph.
