repertoiremap - map symbolic character names to Unicode code points
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.
The repertoiremap file starts with a header that may consist of the following keywords:
The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS.
|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 (#).|
|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 column.|
|The mapping lines have the following form:|
|<symbolic-name> <code-point> comment|
|This defines exactly one mapping, comment being optional.|
|Usual default repertoire map path.|
Repertoire maps are deprecated in favor of Unicode code points.
A mnemonic for the Euro sign can be defined as follows:
<Eu> <U20AC> EURO SIGN
