    Command:

    unicode_start

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           unicode_start [font [umap]]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  unicode_start  command will put the keyboard and console into Uni-
           code (UTF-8) mode.
    
           For the keyboard this means that one can attach 16-bit U+xxxx values to
           keyboard  keys  using loadkeys(1), and have these appear as UTF-8 input
           to user programs.  Also, that one can type hexadecimal  Alt-xxxx  using
           the numeric keypad, and again produce UTF-8.
    
           For  the  console  this means that the kernel expects UTF-8 output from
           user programs, and displays the output accordingly.
    
           The parameter font is a font that is loaded. It should have a  built-in
           Unicode  map,  or,  if it hasn't, such a map can be given explicitly as
           second parameter.  When no font was  specified,  the  current  font  is
           kept.
    
    
    

    NOTE

           Unicode mode is a parameter with a value per virtual console.  However,
           usually the font and keymap is common to all consoles.
