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 column.

       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
              Usual default repertoire map path.

CONFORMING TO

       POSIX.2.

NOTES

       Repertoire maps are deprecated in favor of Unicode code points.

EXAMPLE

       A mnemonic for the Euro sign can be defined as follows:

       <Eu> <U20AC> EURO SIGN
