psfaddtable – add a Unicode character table to a console font


psfaddtable fontfile tablefile outfile


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.

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.
