DESCRIPTION
       d.font  allows  the user	to select use of a specific text font for dis-
       play of text on the graphics monitor.  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  interac-
       tively.	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
	   Options: (italized)
	   cyrilc Cyrillic
	   gothgbt Gothic Great	Britain	triplex
	   gothgrt Gothic German triplex
	   gothitt Gothic Italian triplex
	   greekc Greek	complex
	   greekcs Greek complex script
	   greekp Greek	plain
	   greeks Greek	simplex
	   italicc Italian complex
	   italiccs Italian complex small
	   italict Italian triplex
	   romanc Roman	complex
	   romancs Roman complex small
	   romand Roman	duplex
	   romanp Roman	plain
	   romans Roman	simplex
	   romant Roman	triplex

NOTES
       The font	type romans is the fastest font	type to	display	to the	graph-
       ics monitor.
