FcFileScan(3)                                                    FcFileScan(3)



NAME
       FcFileScan - scan a font file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;fontconfig.h>&gt;

       FcBool  FcFileScan (FcFontSet *set, FcStrSet *dirs, FcFileCache *cache,
       FcBlanks *blanks, const FcChar8 *file, FcBool force);

DESCRIPTION
       Scans a single file and adds all fonts  found  to  set.   If  force  is
       FcTrue,  then  the  file  is  scanned even if associated information is
       found in cache.  If file is a directory, it is added to  dirs.  Whether
       fonts  are  found  depends  on fontconfig policy as well as the current
       configuration. Internally, fontconfig will ignore  BDF  and  PCF  fonts
       which  are  not  in Unicode (or the effectively equivalent ISO Latin-1)
       encoding as those are not usable  by  Unicode-based  applications.  The
       configuration  can  ignore  fonts  based on filename or contents of the
       font file itself. Returns FcFalse if any of the fonts cannot  be  added
       (due to allocation failure). Otherwise returns FcTrue.

VERSION
       Fontconfig version 2.6.0
