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 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
           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

   -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 unsorted.

           This option prints the program version and exits.


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


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


   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.
