NAME
       ucs2any	-  generate  BDF fonts containing subsets of ISO 10646-1 code‐
       points

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, character-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/X11R6/lib/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.
