psfxtable – handle Unicode character tables for console fonts


psfxtable [-i infont] [-o outfont] [-it intable] [-ot outtable] [-nt]


psfxtable handles the embedded Unicode character table for .psf format
console fonts. It reads a font and possibly a table and writes a font
and/or a table. psfaddtable, psfgettable and psfstriptable
are links to it.

Each of the filenames infont, outfont, intable, and outtable may be
replaced by a single dash (-), in which case standard input or standard
output is used. If no -i option is given, the font is read from stan‐
dard input. If no -it or -o or -ot option is given, no input table is
read or no output font or output table is written.

By default the output font (if any) will have a Unicode table when
either the input font has one, or an explicit table (which overrides an
input font table) has been provided. The option -nt causes output of a
font without table. When outfont is requested it will get a psf1
header when infont has a psf1 header and intable does not have
sequences and a psf2 header otherwise.
