NAME

     showfont - font dumper for X font server

SYNOPSIS

     showfont [ -options ... ] -fn pattern

DESCRIPTION

     Showfont displays data about a font that matches the given
     pattern. The information shown includes font information,
     font properties, character metrics, and character bitmaps.

     The wildcard character "*" can be used to match any sequence
     of characters (including none) in the font name, and "?" can
     be used to match any single character. The "*" and "?" char-
     acters must be quoted to prevent them from being expanded by
     the shell. If no pattern is given, "*" is assumed.
