# NAME¶

unihexgen - Generate Unifont 4- or 6-digit hexadecimal glyphs

# SYNOPSIS¶

**unihexgen ***startpoint endpoint*

# DESCRIPTION¶

**unihexgen** produces unifont.hex entries in the Unicode code
point range *startpoint* to *endpoint* (specified as the two
command-line arguments). Output is to STDOUT. If a codepoint is less than or
equal to "FFFF" (i.e., 0xFFFF), a four-digit hexadecimal number is
encoded within the corresponding Unifont glyph as two digits on each of two
rows. Otherwise, a six-digit hexadecimal number is encoded as three digits
on each of two rows.

# OPTIONS¶

There are no options.

# FILES¶

*.hex as output.

# EXAMPLE¶

To generate the Private Use Area glyphs in the Unicode range U+E000..U+F8FF, invoke unihexgen with these arguments:

**unihexgen**e000 f8ff
