       xlsfonts	- server font list displayer for X

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

       xlsfonts	-printer printername [-l] [-ll]	[-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w
		width] [-n columns] [-u] [-o] [-b] [-B]	[-g] [-G] [-x mode]
		[-X mode] [-fn pattern]

       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.

       -display	host:dpy
	      This option specifies the	X server to contact.

       -printer	printername
	      This option specifies the	Xprint printer to contact.

       -d host:dpy
	      Same as -display host:dpy.

       -p printername
	      Same as -printer printername.

       -l     Lists some attributes of the font	on one line in addition	to its

       -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

       -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

       -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).

       -b     List printer builtin fonts.  This	is the same as -x  xp-list-in-

	      (printer mode only)

       -B     Do  not  list  printer  builtin  fonts.	This is	the same as -X

	      (printer mode only)

       -g     List glyph fonts.	 This is the same as -x	xp-list-glyph-fonts.

	      (printer mode only)

       -G     Do  not  list  glyph  fonts.    This   is	  the	same   as   -X

	      (printer mode only)

       -x mode
	      Enable listfont mode mode.

	      Supported	modes are:

		     If	 xp-listinternal-printer-fonts	was set	(via option -b
		     or	-x xp-listinternal-printer-fonts xlsfonts will include
		     all of the	fonts defined as internal printer fonts.

		     If	 xp-list-glyph-fonts  was  set	(via  option  -g or -x
		     xp-list-glyph-fonts) xlsfonts will	 include  all  of  the
		     fonts  available  to the server which have	glyphs associ-
		     ated with them.

       The default value is implicitly determined by the ddx driver to be  the
       all  of	the  listfonts	modes specified	in the xp-listfonts-modes-sup-
       ported printer attribute.

       The value of xp-listfonts-modes-supported and  xp-listfonts-modes  (the
       defaults) can be	looked-up via xplsprinters(1).

       (printer	mode only)

       -X mode
	      Disable  listfont	 mode mode.  See option	-x for a list of valid
	      mode values.

	      (printer mode only)

       -fn pattern
	      This option specifies the	font name pattern to match.

       X(7), Xprint(7),	Xserver(1), xset(1), xfd(1), xplsprinters(1), X	 Logi-
       cal Font	Description Conventions

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

	      XPSERVERLIST must	be set for the -printer	option identifying the
	      available	Xprint servers.	 See Xprint(7) for more	details.

       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.
