Manual Reference Pages - CHARMAP.PL (1)
charmap.pl - display a FIGfont with associated codes
[ <B>-d=B>fontdirectory ]
[ <B>-f=B>fontfile ]
[ <B>-helpB> ]
[ <B>-w=B>outputwidth ]
Charmap doesnt tell you anything you cant find out
by viewing a font in your favorite pager. However,
it does have a few advantages.
You dont have to ignore hardspaces (though you could do this with tr)
It displays more than one FIGchar per FIGline
Change the default font directory. FIGlet looks
for fonts first in the default directory and then
in the current directory. If the <B>-dB> option is not
specified, FIGlet uses the directory that was specified
when it was compiled. To find out which
directory this is, use the <B>-I2B> option.
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 <B>-fB> option
is not specified, FIGlet uses the font that was
specified when it was compiled. To find out which
font this is, use the <B>-I3B> option.
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 wont annoy the people they e-mail
FIGlet output to. <B>-wB> 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.
charmap.pl will make use of these environment variables if present
The default font to load.
It should reside in the directory specified by FIGLIB.

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.
