# Command line unicode search

Similar to Monday’s post about command line emoji search, I often find myself wanting to look up Unicode characters. I have a custom search engine / bookmark set up in Chrome / Firefox (`uni %s`

maps to `http://unicode-search.net/unicode-namesearch.pl?term=%s&.submit=Submit&subs=1`

). That actually works great, but given how relatively much of my day I spend on the command line, I thought it would be interesting to do something there:

```
$ uni delta
⍋ apl functional symbol delta stile
⍙ apl functional symbol delta underbar
⍍ apl functional symbol quad delta
≜ delta equal to
Δ greek capital letter delta
δ greek small letter delta
ẟ latin small letter delta
ƍ latin small letter turned delta
𝚫 mathematical bold capital delta
𝜟 mathematical bold italic capital delta
𝜹 mathematical bold italic small delta
𝛅 mathematical bold small delta
𝛥 mathematical italic capital delta
𝛿 mathematical italic small delta
𝝙 mathematical sans-serif bold capital delta
𝞓 mathematical sans-serif bold italic capital delta
𝞭 mathematical sans-serif bold italic small delta
𝝳 mathematical sans-serif bold small delta
ᵟ modifier letter small delta
```
