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

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       +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, char-
              acter-cell fonts).

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

       mapping-file
              is the name of a character set table  like  those  at  <ftp://ftp.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/>;.   These
              files can also typically be found installed in the /usr/share/X11/fonts/util directory.

       registry-encoding
              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.

EXAMPLE
       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.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       Hopefully a future 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 different encodings is clearly a waste of storage
       capacity.
