SHOWFIGFONTS(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation      SHOWFIGFONTS(1)

NAME
       showfigfonts.pl - prints	samples	of the available FIGlet	fonts

SYNOPSIS
       showfigfonts.pl [ -D ] [	-d=fontdirectory ] [ -help ] [ -w=outputwidth
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       This will recusrively fetch fonts displaying a sample (the name of the
       font) of	each in	alphabetical order.

OPTIONS
       -D -E
	   -E is the default, and a no-op.

	   -D  switches	 to  the German	(ISO 646-DE) character set.  Turns
	   `[',	`\' and	`]' into umlauted A, O and U,  respectively.   `{',
	   `|' and `}' turn into the respective	lower case versions of these.
	   `~' turns into  s-z.

	   These options are deprecated, which means they may soon be removed.

       -d=fontdirectory
	   Change the default font  directory.	 FIGlet	 looks for  fonts
	   first in the	default	directory and then in the current directory.
	   If the -d option is	not specified, FIGlet uses the directory that
	   was specified when it was  compiled.	  To  find  out	 which
	   directory this is, use the -I2 option.

       -w=outputwidth
	   These  options  control  the	 outputwidth,  or  the screen width
	   FIGlet  assumes  when  formatting  its output.   FIGlet  uses the
	   outputwidth to determine when to break lines	and how	to center  the
	   output.  Normally,  FIGlet assumes 80 columns so that people	with
	   wide	terminals won't	annoy the people they  e-mail FIGlet output
	   to. -w sets the  outputwidth	to  the	 given integer.	  An
	   outputwidth	of 1 is	a special value	that tells FIGlet to print
	   each	non- space  character, in its entirety,	on a separate line, no
	   matter how wide it is. Another special outputwidth is -1, it	means
	   to not warp.

ENVIRONMENT
       showfigfonts.pl will make use of	these environment variables if present

       FIGLIB
	   The default location	of fonts.
