       -h, --help

       -f, --size=fontsize
              Use  the  given  fontstyle  (i.e.  fontface)  and fontsize.  Type cyr --help to see
              possible fontstyle-fontsize combinations.

              Use this fontfile.  The options -s and -f get ingnored if  this  option  is  given.
              You  will  use this argument if you want to use font that is not directly supported
              by cyr.

       -e, --encoding=encoding
              Setup the Linux console for this encoding.

       --ttys='console1 console2...'
              Setup Cyrillic in these consoles.


              Use this keyboard and keyboard options.


       cyr reads it defaults from ~/.cyr_defaults or (if the  former  file  doesn't  exist)  from

       Lines  that  contain  only  spaces  or begin with `#' are simply ignored.  All other lines
       should have the form

       keyword parameters

       Different keywords correspond to different arguments of cyr as follows:

       `ttys terminals...' is equivalent to `--tty='terminals...''.

       `style fontstyle' is equivalent to `--style=fontstyle'.

       `size fontsize' is equivalent to `--size=fontsize'.

       `encoding enc' is equivalent to `--encoding=enc'.

       `fontfile fntfile' is equivalent ot `--font=fntfile'.

       `layout kbd' specifies kbd as default keyboard to use.

       `options opt...' specifies opt as default keyboard options.
