unihexgen — Generate Unifont 4- or 6-digit hexadecimal glyphs

Synopsis

unihexgen startpoint endpoint

Description

unihexgen produces unifont.hex entries in the Unicode code point range startpoint to endpoint (specified as the two command-line arguments). Output is to STDOUT. If a codepoint is less than or equal to "FFFF" (i.e., 0xFFFF), a four-digit hexadecimal number is encoded within the corresponding Unifont glyph as two digits on each of two rows. Otherwise, a six-digit hexadecimal number is encoded as three digits on each of two rows.

Options

There are no options.

Files

*.hex as output.

Example

To generate the Private Use Area glyphs in the Unicode range U+E000..U+F8FF, invoke unihexgen with these arguments:

unihexgen e000 f8ff

Bugs

No known real bugs exist, except that this software does not perform extensive error checking on its command-line arguments. If they're not in the format of the original bitmapped output from unihexgen, all bets are off.
