DESCRIPTION

       Xfsinfo is a utility for displaying information about an X font server.
       It is used to examine the capabilities  of  a  server,  the  predefined
       values for various parameters used in communicating between clients and
       the server, and the font catalogues  and  alternate  servers  that  are
       available.

              This  option specifies the X font server to contact.  servername
              must be specified in one of the  formats  defined  in  the  Font
              Server  Names  section  of  X(7).   If not specified, the server
              name in the FONTSERVER environment variable is used.
