     The fontedit utility takes one command line parameter, a file name.  This
     file is used to save the character set.  If the file exists when fontedit
     is invoked, it is read in to initialize the DRCS.	The file is written to
     when fontedit exits.

     Commands to fontedit take the form of function keys.  The current definitions

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     is not saved, and some potentially destructive command, like Select is
     used.  To override the warning message, immediately reissue the command.
