       gnome-character-map, gucharmap, charmap - insert special characters into a document

       gnome-character-map | gucharmap | charmap [--font=string] [gnome-std-options]

       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  dis-
			       play the characters in the character table, when you start Charac-
			       ter Map.

       gnome-std-options       Standard options available for use with most  GNOME  applications.
			       See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.
