repertoiremap

       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.

   Syntax
       The  repertoiremap  file  starts  with a header that may consist of the
       following keywords:

       <comment_char>
              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 (#).

       <escape_char>
              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 col-
       umn.

       The mapping lines have the following form:

       <symbolic-name> <code-point> <comment>
              This defines exactly one mapping, <comment> being optional.

       The mapping section ends with the string END CHARIDS.
