unipagecount(1) Count the assigned code points in a GNU Unifont .hex file


unipagecount [-ppagenum] [-h|-l]


unipagecount reads a GNU Unifont .hex file from STDIN and prints a 16 by 16 grid of the number of defined code points in each 256 character block within a Unicode plane to STDOUT. Code points proceed from left to right, then top to bottom. In all planes, code points U+*FFFE and U+*FFFF are not expected in the input hex file; they are reserved and always counted as being present in a plane.


Select a Unicode plane, from 0 through 16, inclusive. If not specified, unipagecount defaults to Plane 0 (the Basic Multilingual Plane).
Just print information on one 256 code point "page" rather than the entire Basic Multilingual Plane. This prints a 16 by 16 table with an asterisk in every code point that has an assigned glyph.
Print an HTML table with color-coded cell background colors instead of a plain text table.
[The letter "l"]: Print hyperlinks to font bitmaps in the HTML table. To create the bitmaps themselves, use the unihex2bmp program. The bitmaps are assumed to be in the directory "bmp/".
