NAME
       xlsfonts	- server font list displayer for X

SYNOPSIS
       xlsfonts	[-options ...] [-fn pattern]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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

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

       -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 col-
	       umns.  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
	       79.

       -n columns
	       This  option specifies the number of columns to use in display-
	       ing the output.	By default, it will attempt  to	 fit  as  many
	       columns of font names into the number of	character specified by
	       -w width.

       -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).

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

SEE ALSO

       tions

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display to use.

BUGS
       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.
