UNICODE(1)                                             UNICODE(1)

     NAME
          unicode - interpret Unicode characters

     SYNOPSIS
          unicode [ -nt ] hexmin-hexmax

          unicode [ -t ] hex ...

          unicode [ -n ] char ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Unicode converts between UTF and character values from the
          Unicode Standard (see utf(6)).

          If given a range of hexadecimal numbers, unicode prints a
          table of the specified Unicode characters including their
          values and UTF representations.  Otherwise, it translates
          from UTF to numeric value or numeric value to UTF, depending
          on the appearance of the supplied text.  If converting to
          UTF, the characters are printed one per line.

          The options are:

          -n   Forces numeric output to avoid ambiguity with numeric
               characters.

          -t   Output a single string containing the specified charac-
               ters, rather than one per line.

          The output of unicode might not be helpful if the characters
          printed are not available in the current font.

     EXAMPLES
          unicode p
               Print the hex value of p.

          unicode 2200-22f1
               Print a table of miscellaneous mathematical symbols.
