unicode table for cp437
There is a major bug in the cp437 to unicode translation table. Char 0x7c is mapped to U+00a5 which is the Yen sign and wrong. The right mapping is U+00a6 (broken bar). Furthermore, a mapping for U+00b4 (a widely used character) is missing even though easily possible. The patch fixes these, as well as it provides a few other useful mappings. The changes are as follows: 0x0f (enhancement) enables a sort of currency symbol 0x27 (bug) enables a sort of acute accent which is a widely used character 0x44 (enhancement) enables a sort of icelandic capital letter eth 0x7c (major bug) corrects mapping 0xeb (enhancement) enables a sort of icelandic small letter eth 0xee (enhancement) enables a sort of math 'element of' Signed-off-by: Ingo Brueckl <> Acked-by: H.
