UTF8(1) General Commands Manual UTF8(1)NAME
utf8 - quickly change console font and console mode into UTF-8 encoding
This manual page documents the utf8 command.
utf8 is a simple shell script that selects UTF-8 console font and switches console into UTF-8 mode.
If no filename is given, 512 character font LatCyrGr-16.psf font is used, otherwise filename is assumed to be a font name to be used.
If filename is 2, special 256 character font chavo.psf is used.
This manual page was written by Radovan Garabik <email@example.com>, for fonty-rg package.
This manpage is in UTF-8 encoding. This is intentional.

UNICODE_START(1) General Commands Manual UNICODE_START(1)NAME
unicode_start - put keyboard and console in unicode mode
unicode_start [font [umap]]
The unicode_start command will put the keyboard and console into Unicode (UTF-8) mode.
For the keyboard this means that one can attach 16-bit U+xxxx values to keyboard keys using loadkeys(1), and have these appear as UTF-8
input to user programs. Also, that one can type hexadecimal Alt-xxxx using the numeric keypad, and again produce UTF-8.
For the console this means that the kernel expects UTF-8 output from user programs, and displays the output accordingly.
The parameter font is a font that is loaded. It should have a built-in Unicode map, or, if it hasn't, such a map can be given explicitly as
second parameter. When no font was specified, the current font is kept.
Unicode mode is a parameter with a value per virtual console. However, usually the font and keymap is common to all consoles.
