LOADUNIMAP(8)            System Manager's Manual           LOADUNIMAP(8)

NAME         top

       loadunimap - load the kernel unicode-to-font mapping table

SYNOPSIS         top

       loadunimap [ -C console ] [ -o oldmap ] [ map ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The loadunimap command is obsolete - its function is now built-in
       into setfont(8).  However, for backwards compatibility it is
       still available as a separate command.

       The program loadunimap loads the specified map in the kernel
       unicode-to-font mapping table.  If no map is given def mapping
       table is assumed.  The default extension (that can be omitted) is

       If the -o oldmap option is given, the old map is saved in the
       file specified.

       On Linux 2.6.1 and later one can specify the console device using
       the -C option.

       Usually one does not call loadunimap directly - its function is
       also built into setfont(8).
