CHARMAP(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	    CHARMAP(1)

NAME
       charmap.pl - display a FIGfont  with associated codes

SYNOPSIS
       charmap.pl [ -d=fontdirectory ] [ -f=fontfile ] [ -help ] [
       -w=outputwidth ]

DESCRIPTION
       Charmap doesn't tell you	anything you can't find	out by viewing a font
       in your favorite	pager. However,	it does	have a few advantages.

       o   You don't have to ignore hardspaces (though you could do this with
	   tr)

       o   It displays more than one FIGchar per FIGline

OPTIONS
       -d=fontdirectory
	   Change the default font  directory.	 FIGlet	 looks for  fonts
	   first in the	default	directory and then in the current directory.
	   If the -d option is	not specified, FIGlet uses the directory that
	   was specified when it was  compiled.	  To  find  out	 which
	   directory this is, use the -I2 option.

       -f=fontfile
	   Select the font.  The .flf suffix may be  left  off of  fontfile,
	   in  which  case FIGlet automatically	appends	it.  FIGlet looks for
	   the file first in the default  font	directory  and	then  in the
	   current directory, or, if fontfile  was  given  as  a  full
	   pathname, in	the given directory.  If the -f	option is not
	   specified, FIGlet uses  the	font  that  was	specified  when	it was
	   compiled.  To find out which	font this is, use the -I3 option.

       -w=outputwidth
	   These  options  control  the	 outputwidth,  or  the screen width
	   FIGlet  assumes  when  formatting  its output.   FIGlet  uses the
	   outputwidth to determine when to break lines	and how	to center  the
	   output.  Normally,  FIGlet assumes 80 columns so that people	with
	   wide	terminals won't	annoy the people they  e-mail FIGlet output
	   to. -w sets the  outputwidth	to  the	 given integer.	  An
	   outputwidth	of 1 is	a special value	that tells FIGlet to print
	   each	non- space  character, in its entirety,	on a separate line, no
	   matter how wide it is. Another special outputwidth is -1, it	means
	   to not wrap.

ENVIRONMENT
       charmap.pl will make use	of these environment variables if present

       FIGFONT
	   The default font to load.  It should	reside in the directory
	   specified by	FIGLIB.

       FIGLIB
	   The default location	of fonts.

CAVEATS
       The Text::Wrap in perl 5.6 or earlier operate on	bytes, consequently
       the display of characters greater than 0x100 end	up wrapped across two
       rows.
