NAME
       fontedit	- Edit fonts.

SYNOPSIS
       fontedit	file

DESCRIPTION
       Fontedit	 is used to edit the down line reloadable character set	(DRCS)
       of a VT220 terminal.  The editor	has two	display	areas,	one  for  dis-
       playing	the  entry currently being manipulated,	and one	for displaying
       the complete DRCS.  Commands to the editor take the  form  of  function
       keys.

       Fontedit	 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 defi-
       nitions 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 dis-
	      play.

       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).

DIAGNOSTICS
       Fontedit	 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.
