     fslsfonts - list fonts served by X font server


     fslsfonts [-options ...] [-fn pattern]


     Fslsfonts 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.


     -server host:port
             This option specifies the X font 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    Supported for compatibility with xlsfonts, but out-
             put is the same as for -ll.

     -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 mul-
             tiple 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. The default is 0, which
             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

             to get the default host and port to use.


     Doing ``fslsfonts -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.
