The Character Map application enables you to select characters from a character table, then combine the characters into a text string with standard characters. You can insert the text string that you create into other applications, such as text editor documents. Character Map provides accented characters, mathematical symbols, special symbols, and punctuation marks. Many of the characters are not available on a standard keyboard. Note: The gucharmap application also provides a library called libgucharmap. This library is licensed under GPL. Please see the license file at /usr/share/doc/SUNWgnome-character-map/COPYING.bz2 for implications when writing a program which uses this library.
The following options are supported: --font=string Specify the font name and point size that you want to use to display the characters in the character table, when you start Character Map. gnome-std-options Standard options available for use with most GNOME applications. See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.
