       xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X


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


       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


       -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

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

       -v     This option indicates that xlsfonts should print out the program version and exit.

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


       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.
