dumpcs - show codeset table for the current locale


dumpcs [-0123vw]


dumpcs shows a list of printable characters for the user's current
locale, along with their hexadecimal code values. The display device is
assumed to be capable of displaying characters for a given locale. With
no option, dumpcs displays the entire list of printable characters for
the current locale.

With one or more numeric options specified, it shows EUC codeset(s) for
the current locale according to the numbers specified, and in order of
codeset number. Each non-printable character is represented by an
asterisk "*" and enough ASCII space character(s) to fill that codeset's
column width.


Show ASCII (or EUC primary) codeset.

Show EUC codeset 1, if used for the current locale.

Show EUC codeset 2, if used for the current locale.

Show EUC codeset 3, if used for the current locale.

"Verbose". Normally, ranges of non-printable characters are
collapsed into a single line. This option produces one line for
each non-printable character.

Replace code values with corresponding wide character values
(process codes).


The environment variables LC_CTYPE and LANG control the character
classification throughout dumpcs. On entry to dumpcs, these environment
variables are checked in that order. This implies that a new setting for
LANG does not override the setting of LC_CTYPE. When none of the values
is valid, the character classification defaults to the POSIX.1 "C"
