XLSFONTS(1)             FreeBSD General Commands Manual            XLSFONTS(1)

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
       (including 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
               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
               79.

       -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 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.

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.
