NAME

  fslsfonts - list fonts served	by X font server

SYNOPSIS

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

OPTIONS

  -server host:port
      This option specifies the	X font 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
      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 79.

  -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.

DESCRIPTION

  The fslsfonts	program	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.



ENVIRONMENT

  FONTSERVER
	  to get the default host and port to use.


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.
