NAME

       showfont - font dumper for X font server

SYNOPSIS

       showfont [ -options ... ] -fn pattern

DESCRIPTION

       Showfont  displays  data  about  a font that matches the given pattern.
       The information  shown  includes  font  information,  font  properties,
       character metrics, and character bitmaps.

       The  wildcard  character  "*"  can  be  used  to  match any sequence of
       characters (including none) in the font name, and "?" can  be  used  to
       match  any single character.  The "*" and "?" characters must be quoted
       to prevent them from being expanded by the shell.   If  no  pattern  is
       given, "*" is assumed.
