SYNOPSIS
       g.mkfontcap
       g.mkfontcap --help
       g.mkfontcap   [-os]    [extradirs=string]      [--help]	   [--verbose]

   Flags:
       -o
	   Overwrite font configuration	file if	already	existing

       -s

       --quiet
	   Quiet module	output

       --ui
	   Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       extradirs=string
	   List	of extra directories to	scan
	   Comma-separated list	of extra directories to	scan for Freetype-com-
	   patible fonts as well as the	defaults (see documentation)

DESCRIPTION
       g.mkfontcap  is	a  utilty  to generate a GRASS font configuration file
       ("fontcap") containing details of the fonts available  on  the  current
       system.	If Freetype is not installed, the font list will be limited to
       the set of Hershey stroke fonts supplied	with GRASS. With Freetype  en-
       abled however, the module will recursively scan all files within	a pre-
       defined hierarchy to find Freetype-compatible scalable fonts. The  list
       of directories scanned is currently:
	   /usr/lib/X11/fonts
	   /usr/share/X11/fonts
	   /usr/share/fonts
	   /usr/local/share/fonts
	   ${HOME}/Library/Fonts
	   /Library/Fonts
	   /System/Library/Fonts
	   ${WINDIR}/Fonts

       These correspond	to directories where fonts can be found	on some	common
       operating systems. Extra	directories to search can easily by added  us-
       ing  the	 extradirs parameter, which accepts a comma-separated list. An
       extra directory may optionally contain an environment variable  at  the
       start of	the string, if enclosed	in ${xxx} syntax (see examples above).

       The  module  will normally write	to the standard	fontcap	file location,
       $GISBASE/etc/fontcap. If	the  environment  variable  GRASS_FONT_CAP  is
       set,  the  output will instead be written to the	file specified by that
       variable. This is useful	if you don't have permission to	 modify	 $GIS-
       BASE/etc/fontcap: in this case you can use e.g.
       # use local file	version	instead	of system copy
       GRASS_FONT_CAP=$HOME/.gfontcap
       export GRASS_FONT_CAP
       g.mkfontcap

       to  create a personal copy and then to make GRASS use that file instead
       of the system copy.

       The output list of fonts	is sorted first	by type	(Stroke	 fonts	first,
       followed	 by  Freetype)	and  within each type by the short name	of the
       font.
