psfaddtable - add a Unicode character table to a console font
psfaddtable fontfile tablefile [outfile]
psfaddtable takes a console font in .psf format given by fontfile and
merges it with the Unicode character table given by tablefile to produce
a font file with an embedded character table, which is written to
outfile if given, or else to standard output. Either fontfile or out-
file (but not both) can be replaced by a single dash (-) to read from
standard input instead. If the fontfile already contains an embedded
character table, it is ignored.
Each line in the tablefile should be either blank, contain a comment
(preceded by #), or contain a sequence of numbers in either decimal
(default), octal (preceded by 0), or hexadecimal (preceded by 0x) format.
The first number on each line indicates the glyph slot in the
font that is being referred to, this is between 0 and 0xff for a
256-character font and 0 and 0x1ff for a 512-character font. Any subsequent
numbers on the same line are Unicodes matched by this specific
glyph slot. It is permissible to have multiple lines for the same
consolechars(8), psfgettable(1), psfstriptable(1).
