       ucs2any - generate BDF fonts containing subsets of ISO 10646-1 codepoints

       ucs2any [ +d | -d ] source-name { mapping-file registry-encoding } ...

       ucs2any allows one to generate from an ISO 10646-1 encoded BDF font other BDF fonts in any
       possible encoding.  This way, one can derive from a single ISO 10646-1 master font a whole
       set of 8-bit fonts in all ISO 8859 and various other encodings.

       +d     puts DEC VT100 graphics characters in the C0 range (default for upright, character-
	      cell fonts).

       -d     omits DEC VT100 graphics characters from the C0 range (default for all  font  types
	      except upright, character-cell fonts).

	      is the name of an ISO 10646-1 encoded BDF file.

	      is  the  name  of  a  character set table like those at <ftp://ftp.unicode.org/Pub-
	      lic/MAPPINGS/>.	These  files  can  also  typically  be	found  installed  in  the
	      /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/util/ directory.

	      are the CHARSET_REGISTRY and CHARSET_ENCODING field values for the font name (XLFD)
	      of the target font, separated by a hyphen.

       Any number of mapping-file and registry-encoding operand pairs may be specified.

       The command
	      ucs2any 6x13.bdf 8859-1.TXT iso8859-1 8859-2.TXT iso8859-2
       will generate the files 6x13-iso8859-1.bdf and 6x13-iso8859-2.bdf.

       Hopefully a future XFree86 release will have a facility similar to ucs2any built into  the
       server,	and  reencode ISO 10646-1 on the fly, because storing the same fonts in many dif-
       ferent encodings is clearly a waste of storage capacity.
