     xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X


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


     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.


     -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 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. 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

     -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


     X(7), Xserver(1), xset(1), xfd(1), X Logical Font Descrip-
     tion Conventions


     DISPLAY to get the default host and display to use.


     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.
