fslsfonts(1)                                                      fslsfonts(1)




NAME

       fslsfonts - list fonts served by X font server


SYNOPSIS

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


DESCRIPTION

       fslsfonts  lists  the fonts that match the given pattern.  The wildcard
       character "*" may be used to match any sequence of characters  (includ-
       ing  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

       -server servername
               This option specifies the X font server to contact.  servername
               must be specified in one of the formats  defined  in  the  Font
               Server  Names  section  of X(7).   If not specified, the server
               name in the FONTSERVER environment variable is used.


       -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 output 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 multiple col-
               umns.  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 display-
               ing the output.  The default is 0, which will attempt to fit as
               many  columns of font names into the number of character speci-
               fied by -w width.

       -u      This option indicates that the output should be left  unsorted.



ENVIRONMENT

       FONTSERVER
               To  get the default fontserver.  The server name must be speci-
               fied in one of the formats defined in  the  Font  Server  Names
               section of X(7).


SEE ALSO

       xfs(1), showfont(1), xlsfonts(1), X(7).


BUGS

       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.
