fontedit - "edit fonts"
The fontedit utility is used to edit the down line reloadable character set (DRCS) of a VT220 terminal. The editor has two display areas, one for displaying the entry currently being manipulated, and one for displaying the complete DRCS. Commands to the editor take the form of function keys.
The fontedit utility takes one command line parameter, a file name. This file is used to save the character set. If the file exists when fontedit is invoked, it is read in to initialize the DRCS. The file is written to when fontedit exits.
Commands to fontedit take the form of function keys. The current definitions are:
| HELP || Display a help screen. |
| F6 || Turn the pixel under the cursor on. |
| F7 || Turn the pixel under the cursor off. |
| F13 || Clear the display area. |
| Find || Save the current font in the font table. Update the DRCS display. |
| Select || Extract the entry selected by the cursor in the DRCS display. |
| Prev || Move the cursor to the previous entry in the DRCS display. |
| Next || Move the cursor to the next entry in the DRCS display. |
| Insert || Insert a blank line at the current cursor position. The bottom row is lost. |
| Remove || Remove the row at the current cursor position. All rows below the current one are shifted up. |
| Cursors || Move the cursor in the main display area. |
If the screen gets garbled, press <control-L>.
To exit fontedit, press <control-D>. The DRCS will be saved in file. To exit without saving the DRCS, hit interrupt (usually DEL).
The fontedit utility will issue a warning when the entry being worked on is not saved, and some potentially destructive command, like Select is used. To override the warning message, immediately reissue the command.
