       psfaddtable - add a Unicode character table to a console font

       psfaddtable fontfile tablefile outfile

       psfaddtable  takes  a console font in .psf format given by fontfile and
       merges it with the Unicode character table given by tablefile  to  pro‐
       duce  a font file with an embedded character table, which is written to
       outfile.	 An input file name of "-" denotes standard input, and an out‐
       put  file name of "-" denotes standard output.  If the fontfile already
       contains an embedded character table, it is ignored.

       Each line in the tablefile should be either blank,  contain  a  comment
       (preceded  by  #),  or  contain a sequence of numbers in either decimal
       (default), octal (preceded by 0), or hexadecimal (preceded by 0x)  for‐
       mat,  separated by spaces or tabs.  The first number on each line indi‐
       cates the glyph slot in the font that is being  referred	 to,  this  is
       between	0  and	0xff  for  a  256-character font and 0 and 0x1ff for a
       512-character font.  Any subsequent numbers on the same line  are  Uni‐
       codes matched by this specific glyph slot.  Instead of a single Unicode
       one may have a sequence of Unicodes separates by commas, to denote that
       the glyph depicts the corresponding composed symbol.  It is permissible
       to have multiple lines for the same glyph.
