NAME
       gucharmap,  charmap,  gnome-character-map  -  insert special characters
       into a document

SYNOPSIS
       gucharmap [--font=string] [gnome-std-options]

DESCRIPTION
       The Character Map application enables you to select characters  from  a
       character  table,  then  combine the characters into a text string with
       standard characters. You can insert the text  string  that  you  create
       into other applications, such as text editor documents.

       Character  Map provides accented characters, mathematical symbols, spe-
       cial symbols, and punctuation marks. Many of  the  characters  are  not
       available on a standard keyboard.

       charmap(1)  and gnome-character-map(1) have been deprecated and are now
       symbolic links to gucharmap.
