Section (5) repertoiremap
repertoiremap — map symbolic character names to Unicode code points
A repertoire map defines mappings between symbolic character names (mnemonics) and Unicode code points when compiling a locale with localedef(1). Using a repertoire map is optional, it is needed only when symbolic names are used instead of now preferred Unicode code points.
The repertoiremap file starts with a header that may consist of the following keywords:
is followed by a character that will be used as the comment character for the rest of the file. It defaults to the number sign (#).
is followed by a character that should be used as the escape character for the rest of the file to mark characters that should be interpreted in a special way. It defaults to the backslash ().
The mapping section starts with the keyword
CHARIDS in the first column.
The mapping lines have the following form:
- <symbolic-name> <code-point> comment
This defines exactly one mapping,
The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS.
