12.233 toy-braille

This is a bit of toy code to write in braille.

To try this, load this file (‘M-x load-file path/to/toy-braille.el’), then do:

M-: (get-toy-braille-string "just a test")

That’s just a toy, meant as an excuse and maybe a tool to learn a bit of braille, nothing more.

Unicode fonts are needed.

You can try:

M-: (set-default-font "-*-unifont-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*")

or

M-: (set-default-font "-*-clearlyu-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-*")

(it will only work if the relative font is installed and properly configured).
