NAME
       xlsfonts	- server font list displayer for X

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

DESCRIPTION
       xlsfonts	lists the fonts	that match the given pattern.  The wildcard
       character "*" may be used to match any sequence of characters (includ-
       ing 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.

OPTIONS
       -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 systems).

       -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.

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

BUGS
       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.
