NAME

       xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X

SYNOPSIS

       xlsfonts [-display host:dpy] [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w
       width] [-n columns] [-u] [-o] [-fn pattern]

DESCRIPTION

       xlsfonts lists the fonts that match the given pattern.  The wildcard
       character "*" may be used to match any sequence of characters
       (including none), and "?" to match any single character.  If no pattern
       is given, "*" is assumed.

       The "*" and "?" characters must be quoted to prevent them from being
       expanded by the shell.

OPTIONS

       -display host:dpy
              This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -d host:dpy
              Same as -display host:dpy.

       -l     Lists some attributes of the font on one line in addition to its
              name.

       -ll    Lists font properties in addition to -l output.

       -lll   Lists character metrics in addition to -ll output.

       -m     This option indicates that long listings should also print the
              minimum and maximum bounds of each font.

       -C     This option indicates that listings should use multiple columns.
              This is the same as -n 0.

       -1     This option indicates that listings should use a single column.
              This is the same as -n 1.

       -w width
              This option specifies the width in characters that should be
              used in figuring out how many columns to print.  The default is
              79.

       -n columns
              This option specifies the number of columns to use in displaying
              the output. By default, it will attempt to fit as many columns
              of font names into the number of character specified by -w
              width.

       -u     This option indicates that the output should be left unsorted.

       -o     This option indicates that xlsfonts should do an OpenFont (and
              QueryFont, if appropriate) rather than a ListFonts.  This is
              useful if ListFonts or ListFontsWithInfo fail to list a known
              font (as is the case with some scaled font systems).

       -fn pattern
              This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY
              DISPLAY must be set to get the default host and display to use.

BUGS

       Doing ‘‘xlsfonts -l’’ can tie up your server for a very long time.
       This is really a bug with single-threaded non-preemptable servers, not
       with this program.
