  cp_dirs - Database configuration file	used by	worldwide support software




  The cp_dirs configuration file determines the	locations for the following

    +  The character attribute database	for user-defined characters (see
       cedit(1)	and cgen(1))

    +  Font database files and preload font database files for user-defined

       Font database files are used by the On-Demand Loading (ODL) mechanism.
       Preload font database files are used with terminals that	are designed

    +  BDF and PCF format font files for user-defined characters

       These files are used for	graphical user interface displays.

    +  Input key sequence databases used by DECwindows and CDE input method
       servers and by terminals	that are designed specifically for multibyte

    +  Collating value database	used for sorting (see asort(1))

    +  Phrase databases	used with both the software and	the hardware phrase
       input methods (see phrase(1) and	sim(5)).
