VFONTINFO(1)                General Commands Manual               VFONTINFO(1)



NAME
       vfontinfo - inspect and print out information about fonts

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/vfontinfo [ -mvz ] fontname [ characters ]

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is  available  with  the  Versatec software installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       vfontinfo allows you to examine a font in the UNIX system  format.   It
       prints out all the information in the font header and information about
       every non-null (width > 0) glyph.  This can be used to  make  sure  the
       font is consistent with the format.

       The  fontname argument is the name of the font you wish to inspect.  It
       writes to the standard output.  If it cannot  find  the  file  in  your
       working  directory,  it  looks in /usr/lib/vfont (the place most of the
       fonts are kept).

       The characters, if given, specify certain characters to show.  If omit-
       ted, the entire font is shown.

OPTIONS
       -m     Display header.

       -v     Verbose.   Display  bits of the glyph using commas, periods, and
              pipe (`|') symbols.

       -z     Zoom.  Display bits of the glyph as an  array  of  M  and  SPACE
              characters.

FILES
       /usr/lib/vfont
