      xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X

      xlsfonts [-options ...] [-fn pattern]

      Xlsfonts 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.

      -display host:dpy
	      This option specifies the X 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    Lists character metrics in addition to -ll output.

      -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.  By default, it 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.

      -o      This option indicates that xlsfonts should do an OpenFont (and
	      QueryFont, if appropriate) rather than a ListFonts.  This is
	      useful if ListFonts or ListFontsWithInfo fail to list a known

	      font (as is the case with some scaled font systems).

      -fn pattern
	      This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

      DISPLAY to get the default host and display to use.

      Doing ``xlsfonts -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.
