The cpi file extension is also related to MS-DOS operating system and used for files that contain code page information file.

All versions of MS-DOS and Windows (from DOS 3.3 on), allow you to customize the keyboard mapping - and full screen font characters - to suit different languages.

MS-DOS and Windows 3.x/9x/Me do not require a CPI file to create full screen modes. (If a CPI file is not used they default to using the "hardware" fonts in the video card's ROM BIOS - as the PC does when it first boots.)
