FcPatternBuild(3)                                            FcPatternBuild(3)

       FcPatternBuild,  FcPatternVaBuild,  FcPatternVapBuild - Create patterns
       from arguments

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

       FcPattern * FcPatternBuild (FcPattern *orig, ...);

       FcPattern * FcPatternVaBuild (FcPattern *orig, va_list va);

       void FcPatternVapBuild (FcPattern  *result,  FcPattern  *orig,  va_list

       Builds a pattern using a list of objects, types and values.  Each value
       to be entered in the pattern is specified with three arguments:

       1. Object name, a string describing the property to be added.

       2. Object type, one of the FcType enumerated values

       3. Value, not an FcValue, but the raw type as  passed  to  any  of  the
          FcPatternAdd<type>  functions.   Must  match  the type of the second

       The argument list is terminated by a null object name, no  object  type
       nor  value need be passed for this.  The values are added to `pattern',
       if `pattern' is null, a new pattern is created.  In  either  case,  the
       pattern is returned. Example

       pattern = FcPatternBuild (0, FC_FAMILY, FcTypeString, "Times", (char *) 0);

       FcPatternVaBuild  is used when the arguments are already in the form of
       a varargs  value.  FcPatternVapBuild  is  a  macro  version  of  FcPat-
       ternVaBuild which returns its result directly in the result variable.
