What command displays the character map?


I need the command that brings up the character map in the terminal. It shows all the characters in use in the console for the current font.

thanks.

There are some tools available that display available fonts, charsets, etc.
You can use xfontsel, charmap that are available in mosts distros. If you use KDE you can also use kcharselect
