NAME         top

       psfxtable - handle Unicode character tables for console fonts

SYNOPSIS         top

       psfxtable [-i infont] [-o outfont] [-it intable] [-ot outtable]

DESCRIPTION         top

       psfxtable handles the embedded Unicode character table for .psf
       format console fonts. It reads a font and possibly a table and
       writes a font and/or a table.  psfaddtable(1), psfgettable(1) and
       psfstriptable(1) are links to it.

       Each of the filenames infont, outfont, intable, and outtable may
       be replaced by a single dash (-), in which case standard input or
       standard output is used.  If no -i option is given, the font is
       read from standard input.  If no -it or -o or -ot option is
       given, no input table is read or no output font or output table
       is written.

       By default the output font (if any) will have a Unicode table
       when either the input font has one, or an explicit table (which
       overrides an input font table) has been provided.  The option -nt
       causes output of a font without table.  When outfont is requested
       it will get a psf1 header when infont has a psf1 header and
       intable does not have sequences and a psf2 header otherwise.
