unihexgen(1) Generate Unifont 4- or 6-digit hexadecimal glyphs


unihexgen startpoint endpoint


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.


There are no options.


*.hex as output.


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

unihexgen e000 f8ff
