       mfont_parse_name - Create a font by parsing a fontname.


       MFont* mfont_parse_name (const char * name, MSymbol format)


       Create a font by parsing a fontname. The mfont_parse_name() function creates a new font
       object. The properties are extracted fontname name.

       format specifies the format of name.  If format is Mx, name is parsed as XLFD (X Logical
       Font Description). If format is Mfontconfig, name is parsed as Fontconfig's textual
       representation of font. If format is Mnil, name is at first parsed as XLFD, and it it
       fails, parsed as Fontconfig's representation.


           If the operation was successful, this function returns a pointer to the created font.
           Otherwise it returns NULL.
