NAME
repertoiremap - map symbolic character names to Unicode code points DESCRIPTION
A repertoire map defines mappings between symbolic character names (mnemonics) and Unicode code points when compiling a locale with localedef(1). Using a repertoire map is optional, it is needed only when symbolic names are used instead of now preferred Unicode code points. Syntax The repertoiremap file starts with a header that may consist of the following keywords: comment_char is followed by a character that will be used as the comment character for the rest of the file. It defaults to the number sign (#). escape_char is followed by a character that should be used as the escape character for the rest of the file to mark characters that should be interpreted in a special way. It defaults to the backslash (). The mapping section starts with the keyword CHARIDS in the first column. The mapping lines have the following form: <symbolic-name> <code-point> comment This defines exactly one mapping, comment being optional. The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS. FILES

Repertoire maps are deprecated in favor of Unicode code points. EXAMPLE
A mnemonic for the Euro sign can be defined as follows: <Eu> <U20AC> EURO SIGN SEE ALSO

NAME
charmap - character set description file DESCRIPTION
A character set description (charmap) defines all available characters and their encodings in a character set. localedef(1) can use charmaps to create locale variants for different character sets. Syntax The charmap file starts with a header that may consist of the following keywords: <code_set_name> is followed by the name of the character map. <comment_char> is followed by a character that will be used as the comment character for the rest of the file. It defaults to the number sign (#). <escape_char> is followed by a character that should be used as the escape character for the rest of the file to mark characters that should be interpreted in a special way. It defaults to the backslash (). <mb_cur_max> is followed by the maximum number of bytes for a character. The default value is 1. <mb_cur_min> is followed by the minimum number of bytes for a character. This value must be less than or equal than <mb_cur_max>. If not speci- fied, it defaults to <mb_cur_max>. The character set definition section starts with the keyword CHARMAP in the first column. The following lines may have one of the two following forms to define the character set: <character> byte-sequence comment This form defines exactly one character and its byte sequence, comment being optional. <character>..<character> byte-sequence comment This form defines a character range and its byte sequence, comment being optional. The character set definition section ends with the string END CHARMAP. The character set definition section may optionally be followed by a section to define widths of characters. The WIDTH_DEFAULT keyword can be used to define the default width for all characters not explicitly listed. The default character width is 1. The width section for individual characters starts with the keyword WIDTH in the first column. The following lines may have one of the two following forms to define the widths of the characters: <character> width This form defines the width of exactly one character. <character>...<character> width This form defines the width for all the characters in the range. The width definition section ends with the string END WIDTH. FILES
