NAME

repertoiremap - map symbolic character names to Unicode code points

DESCRIPTION

A repertoire map defines mappings between symbolic character names (mnemonics) and Unicode code points when compiling a locale with localedef(1). Using a repertoire map is optional, it is needed only when symbolic names are used instead of now preferred Unicode code points. Syntax The repertoiremap file starts with a header that may consist of the following keywords: comment_char is followed by a character that will be used as the comment character for the rest of the file. It defaults to the number sign (#). escape_char is followed by a character that should be used as the escape character for the rest of the file to mark characters that should be interpreted in a special way. It defaults to the backslash (\). The mapping section starts with the keyword CHARIDS in the first column. The mapping lines have the following form: <symbolic-name> <code-point> comment This defines exactly one mapping, comment being optional. The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS.
