DESCRIPTION

       d.font  allows  the  user to select use of a specific text font for display of text on the
       graphics monitor.  The GRASS program show.fonts.sh is a  UNIX  Bourne  shell  macro  which
       names  and  displays  the  fonts  that can be selected using d.font.  If the user does not
       specify a font when using other GRASS programs that display text, the font type romans  is
       used by default.

       The  user  can  run  this  program either non-interactively or interactively.  If the user
       specifies a font type name on the command line the  program  will  run  non-interactively.
       Alternately,  the  user  can  simply  type  d.font  on the command line; in this case, the
       program will prompt the user for a display text font type.

       Parameter:

       font=name
              Name of a font type, from among the font types italicized below.
              Default: romans
