NAME
       fc-cache - build font information cache files

SYNOPSIS
       fc-cache [ -frsvVh ]  [ --force ]  [ --really-force ]  [ --system-only ]  [ --verbose ]	[
       --version ]  [ --help ]	[ dir... ]

DESCRIPTION
       fc-cache scans the font directories on the system and builds font information cache  files
       for applications using fontconfig for their font handling.

       If  directory  arguments  are  not given, fc-cache uses each directory in the current font
       configuration. Each directory is scanned for font files readable by FreeType. A	cache  is
       created which contains properties of each font and the associated filename.  This cache is
       used to speed up application startup when using the fontconfig library.

       Note that fc-cache must be executed once per architecture  to  generate	font  information
       customized for that architecture.

OPTIONS
       This  program  follows  the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

       -f     Force re-generation of apparently up-to-date cache files, overriding the	timestamp
	      checking.

       -r     Erase all existing cache files and rescan.

       -s     Only  scan  system-wide directories, omitting the places located in the user's home
	      directory.

       -v     Display status information while busy.

       -h     Show summary of options.

       -V     Show version of the program and exit.

       dir    Directory to scan for fonts.

FILES
       %cachdir%/*-%arch%.cache-2
	      These files are generated by fc-cache and contain maps  from  file  names  to  font
	      properties.  They  are  read  by	the  fontconfig library at application startup to
	      locate appropriate fonts.
