NAME

       uniunmask - XOR bits or substitute glyphs in a GNU Unifont file.

SYNOPSIS

       uniunmask [-iinput_file] [-ooutput_file]

DESCRIPTION

       uniunmask  reads  a  GNU  Unifont .hex file.  As it reads the font file, it scans for code
       points matching entries in the "masks.hex" and "substitutes.hex" files.   "masks.hex"  and
       "substitutes.hex"  are also in GNU Unifont .hex format, ordered by Unicode code point (the
       hexadecimal number to the left of the colon on each line).

       If a code point is encountered  from  "substitutes.hex",  the  input  code  point  in  the
       original  .hex  file  is ignored (as is any entry with the same code point in "masks.hex")
       and the glyph from "substitutes.hex" is written to the output file.

       Otherwise, if a code point is  encountered  from  "masks.hex",  the  input  glyph  in  the
       original  .hex  file  is XORed with the bits in the "masks.hex" entry.  The result of this
       XOR operation is written to the output file.

OPTIONS

       -i          Specify the input file. The default is stdin.

       -o          Specify the output file. The default is stdout.

FILES

       masks.hex, substitutes.hex, *.hex GNU Unifont font files

BUGS

       No  known  real  bugs  exist,  except  that this software does not perform extensive error
       checking on its input files.  If they're not in the format of the original GNU Unifont hex
       file, all bets are off.
