       A character set description (charmap) defines a character­
       set of available characters and their encodings. All  sup­
       ported  character  sets should have the portable character
       set as a proper subset.


       The charmap file starts with a header, that may consist of
       the following keywords:

              is followed by the name of the codeset.

              is followed by the max number of bytes for a multi­
              byte-character.  Multibyte characters are currently
              not supported. The default value is 1.

              is  followed by the min number of bytes for a char­
              acter. This  value  must  be  less  or  equal  than
              mb_cur_max.   If  not  specified,  it  defaults  to

              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 ( \ ).

              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 ( # ).

       The  charmap-definition  itself  starts  with  the keyword
       CHARMAP in column 1.

       The following lines may have  one  of  the  two  following
       forms to define the character-encodings:

       <symbolic-name> <encoding> <comments>
              This  form  defines  exactly  one character and its

       <symbolic-name>...<symbolic-name> <encoding> <comments>
              This form defines a couple of characters.  This  is
              only  useful  for  mutlibyte-characters,  which are
              currently not implemented.

              with a decimal number

              with a hexadecimal number

              with an octal  number.
