psf-unifont: PSF (console) version of GNU Unifont with APL support

 This contains a PSF font (Unifont-APL8x16.psf) as a console frame
 buffer font with a subset of Unifont for use with GNU APL and other
 APL implementations. The font is installed in "/usr/share/consolefonts/".
 This PSF font is only suitable for running in console mode, not under the
 X Window System.
 .
 A PSF font allows a maximum of 512 glyphs. The glyph subset in this
 font includes ASCII, Latin-1, "oe" and "OE" ligatures for French, the
 Euro sign, Unicode Box Drawing, Unicode Block Elements, plus various
 glyphs for APL support and some other miscellaneous glyphs. The font
 is monospaced, 8 pixels wide by 16 pixels tall.
 .
 Consider using the TrueType version instead (ttf-unifont) if you are
 not running in console mode, because that version is scalable to any
 point size and has proper combining character support.

ttf-unifont: TrueType version of GNU Unifont

 This contains four fonts: "Unifont", "Unifont Upper", "Unifont CSUR",
 and "Unifont Sample".
 .
 unifont.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
 outline font, Unifont. Each pixel in the original bitmap font
 is represented as an outlined square. The font provides a glyph
 for each visible code point (character) in the Unicode Basic
 Multilingual Plane (BMP, or Plane 0). The BMP contains most of
 the world's modern writing scripts. This font looks best at 12pt.
 .
 unifont_upper.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
 outline font that covers Unicode ranges above Plane 0. Most of its
 glyphs are in Plane 1, the Unicode Supplemental Multilingual Plane (SMP).
 .
 unifont_csur.ttf is a bitmap font converted into a scalable TrueType
 outline font that contains some scripts in the ConScript Unicode
 Registry (CSUR). These scripts are not part of the Unicode Standard,
 but are a popular use for the Private Use Area (PUA). This font
 contains glyphs in Plane 0 and in the higher PUA planes.
 .
 unifont_sample.ttf is an SBIT font that contains combining circles
 and is therefore suitable for illustrating individual Unicode glyphs.
 The other font files do not contain combining circles and so are suitable
 for general-purpose writing.
 .
 Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change
 shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which
 can be written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy
 behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than
 an empty box for an unknown glyph.

unifont: font with a glyph for each visible Unicode Plane 0 character

 This package is a convenient way to install the PCF bitmap version,
 PSF bitmap version, and the scalable TrueType outline version of "Unifont"
 (intended for general-purpose use) and "Unifont Sample" (which contains
 combining circles to use for illustration purposes). It also installs
 a copy of unifont.hex and related files in /usr/share/unifont.
 .
 GNU Unifont was designed to render something besides an empty box
 for each visible Unicode character in the Basic Multilingual Plane
 (BMP, or Plane 0). The BMP contains most of the world's modern writing
 scripts. This font looks best at 12pt.
 .
 Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change
 shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which
 can be written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy
 behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than
 an empty box for an unknown glyph.

unifont-bin: utilities for manipulating GNU Unifont

 This is a set of Perl scripts, C programs, and FontForge scripts
 to manipulate Roman Czyborra's GNU Unifont ".hex" format font
 files. GNU Unifont has a Unicode-compatible font structure.
 These utilities allow editing ".hex" fonts with text and
 graphical editors, producing final versions of fonts in BDF,
 PCF, PSF, TrueType SBIT, and TrueType outline formats.
 .
 To build the TrueType fonts, install the package 'fontforge'. To build
 the PCF fonts, use 'bdftopcf', which is in the 'xfonts-utils' package.
 To build the PSF font, use 'bdf2psf', which is in the 'console-setup'
 package. To obtain the font sources, run 'apt-get source unifont'.
 .
 Building the main Unifont TrueType font will require at least 4 GB of
 main memory. You only need texlive (~1 GB) if you want to rebuild the
 unifont.pdf file in doc/ (see doc/Makefile); this is not done by default.

xfonts-unifont: PCF (bitmap) version of GNU Unifont

 This contains three fonts: "Unifont" (unifont.pcf.gz),
 "Unifont CSUR" (unifont_csur.pcf.gz), and
 "Unifont Sample" (unifont_sample.pcf.gz).
 .
 This is a bitmap version of Unifont in a standard X11 format.
 The fonts provide a glyph for each visible code point (character)
 in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP, or Plane 0). The BMP
 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts. These fonts
 look best at 12pt.
 .
 unifont.pcf.gz contains Unicode Plane 0 glyphs. This is the main font.
 .
 unifont_sample.pcf.gz contains combining circles for combining characters.
 Thus it is suited for illustrating individual Unicode glyphs, whereas
 Unifont is intended for general-purpose writing.
 .
 unifont_csur.pcf.gz contains some scripts in the Plane 0 ConScript
 Unicode Registry (CSUR). These scripts are not part of the Unicode
 Standard, but are a popular use for the Private Use Area (PUA).
 .
 Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change
 shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which
 can be written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy
 behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than
 an empty box for an unknown glyph.
 .
 Consider using the TrueType version instead (ttf-unifont), because
 that version is scalable to any point size and has proper combining
 character support.
