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.
