NAME

     repertoiremap - map symbolic character names to Unicode code points

DESCRIPTION

     A  repertoire  map  defines  mappings  between symbolic character names
     (mnemonics) and Unicode  code  points  when  compiling  a  locale  with
     localedef(1).   Using  a  repertoire map is optional, it is needed only
     when symbolic names are used instead  of  now  preferred  Unicode  code
     points.
 Syntax
     The  repertoiremap  file  starts  with a header that may consist of the
     following keywords:
     comment_char
            is followed by a character that will  be  used  as  the  comment
            character  for  the rest of the file.  It defaults to the number
            sign (#).
     escape_char
            is followed by a character that should be  used  as  the  escape
            character  for  the  rest  of  the  file to mark characters that
            should be interpreted in a special  way.   It  defaults  to  the
            backslash (\).
     The  mapping  section starts with the keyword CHARIDS in the first col-
     umn.
     The mapping lines have the following form:
     <symbolic-name> <code-point> comment
            This defines exactly one mapping, comment being optional.
     The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS.

FILES

     /usr/share/i18n/repertoiremaps

CONFORMING TO

NOTES

     Repertoire maps are deprecated in favor of Unicode code points.
