       mkfontscale - create an index of scalable font files for X

       mkfontscale  [ -b ] [ -s ] [ -o filename ] [ -x suffix ] [ -a encoding ] ... [ -f fuzz ] [
       -l ] [ -e directory ] [ -p prefix ] [ -r prefix ] [ -n prefix ] [ -u |  -U  ]  [  --  ]	[
       directory ] ...

       For  each  directory  argument,	mkfontscale  reads  all of the scalable font files in the
       directory.  For every font file found, an X11 font name (XLFD) is generated, and is  writ-
       ten together with the file name to a file fonts.scale in the directory.

       The resulting fonts.scale file should be checked and possibly manually edited before being
       used as input for the mkfontdir(1) program.

       -b     read bitmap fonts.  By default, bitmap fonts are ignored.

       -s     ignore scalable fonts.  By default, scalable fonts are read.  If -b  is  set,  this
	      flag has the side effect of enabling the reading of fonts.scale files.

       -o filename
	      send  program  output  to  filename; default is fonts.scale if bitmap fonts are not
	      being read, and fonts.dir if they are.  If filename is relative, it is  created  in
	      the  directory being processed.  If it is the special value -, output is written to
	      standard output.

       -x suffix
	      exclude all files with the specified suffix.

       -a encoding
	      add encoding to the list of encodings searched for.

       -f fuzz
	      set the fraction of characters that may be missing in large encodings to fuzz  per-
	      cent.  Defaults to 2%.

       -l     Write  fonts.dir	files  suitable  for  implementations that cannot reencode legacy
	      fonts (BDF and PCF).  By default, it is assumed that the implementation  can  reen-
	      code Unicode-encoded legacy fonts.

       -e     specifies  a  directory  with  encoding files.  Every such directory is scanned for
	      encoding files, the list of which is then written to  an	"encodings.dir"  file  in
	      every font directory.

       -p     Specifies  a prefix that is prepended to the encoding file path names when they are
	      written to the "encodings.dir" file.  The prefix is prepended literally: if  a  `/'
	      is  required  between the prefix and the path names, it must be supplied explicitly
	      as part of the prefix.

       -r     Keep non-absolute encoding directories in their  relative  form  when  writing  the
	      "encodings.dir"  file.   The default is to convert relative encoding directories to
	      absolute directories by prepending the current directory.  The positioning of  this
	      options is significant, as this option only applies to subsequent -e options.

       -n     do  not  scan  for fonts, do not write font directory files.  This option is useful
	      when generating encoding directories only.

       -u, -U disable (-u) or enable (-U)  indexing  of  ISO  10646:1  font  encodings	(default:

       --     end of options.

       X(7), Xserver(1), mkfontdir(1), ttmkfdir(1), xfs(1), xset(1)

       The  format  of	the  fonts.scale,  fonts.dir and encodings.dir files is documented in the
       mkfontdir(1) manual page.

       Mkfontscale will overwrite any fonts.scale file even if it has been hand-edited.

       mkfontscale -b -s -l is equivalent to mkfontdir.

       The version of mkfontscale included in this X.Org Foundation release was originally  writ-
       ten  by Juliusz Chroboczek <jch@freedesktop.org> for the XFree86 project.  The functional-
       ity of this program was inspired by the ttmkfdir utility by Joerg Pommnitz.
