MirOS Manual: fc-cache(1)


FC-CACHE(1)         UNIX Programmer's Manual          FC-CACHE(1)

NAME

     fc-cache, fonts.cache - create an index of FreeType font
     files in a directory

SYNOPSIS

     fc-cache [directory-name ... ]

DESCRIPTION

     If directory arguments are not given, fc-cache uses each
     directory in the current font configuration.  Each directory
     is scanned for font files readable by FreeType.  A cache is
     created which contains properties of each font and the asso-
     ciated filename.  This cache is used to speed application
     startup when using the fontconfig library.

FILES

     fonts.cache    Maps file names to font properties.  Read by
                    the fontconfig library at application startup
                    to locate appropriate fonts.
