NAME
       makextdev - create tables to allow iptroff to access 16 bit characters

SYNOPSIS
       makextdev file

DESCRIPTION
       makextdev  creates extended tables for use with iptroff so that full 16
       bit characters can be addressed.

       The Xerox Character Encoding Standard specifies a character set of  65K
       characters.  Typesetter-Independent troff only uses 8 bit characters in
       its internal representation.  Therefore, the postprocessor dipress must
       be  able	 to map from 8 bit characters to 16 bit characters.  The work-
       around is based on the fact that makedev will ignore  any  text	beyond
       the  fourth  data field in a font description file.  If the typesetting
       code (the fourth field) is octal 0377 then makextdev  expects  a	 fifth
       field which contains the octal code for the true 16 bit character.

       This  program  uses information created by makedev and thus must be run
       after makedev .
