       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] [-r resolution] [-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).

       -r resolutionname
	      Set print	resolution name	(usually values	like 300dpi or
	      300x600, see output of xplsprinters).  This may alter the	output
	      of xlsfonts if there are printer fonts which get enabled/dis-
	      abled on per-resolution basis by the DDX.

	      (printer mode only)

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

	      (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.

       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.
