xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X
[-options ...] [-fn pattern]
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.
- This option specifies the X server to contact.
- Lists some attributes
of the font on one line in addition to its name.
- Lists font properties
in addition to -l output.
- Lists character metrics in addition to -ll output.
- This option indicates that long listings should also print the minimum
and maximum bounds of each font.
- This option indicates that listings should
use multiple columns. This is the same as -n 0.
- This option indicates that
listings should use a single column. This is the same as -n 1.
- -w width
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.
- This option indicates that the output
should be left unsorted.
- 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.
X Logical Font Description Conventions
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.
