       FcFileScan - scan a font	file

       #include	<fontconfig/fontconfig.h>

       FcBool FcFileScan (FcFontSet *set, FcStrSet *dirs, FcFileCache *cache, FcBlanks *blanks,	const FcChar8 *file, FcBool force);

       Scans  a	 single	file and adds all fonts	found to set.  If force	is Fc-
       True, then the file is scanned even if associated information is	 found
       in  cache.  If  file is a directory, it is added	to dirs. Whether fonts
       are found depends on fontconfig policy as well as the current  configu-
       ration.	Internally, fontconfig will ignore BDF and PCF fonts which are
       not in Unicode (or the effectively equivalent ISO Latin-1) encoding  as
       those  are  not usable by Unicode-based applications. The configuration
       can ignore fonts	based on filename or contents of the font file itself.
       Returns	FcFalse	if any of the fonts cannot be added (due to allocation
       failure). Otherwise returns FcTrue.
