xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X
xlsfonts [-display host:dpy] [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w width] [-n columns] [-u]
[-o] [-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
This option specifies the X server to contact.
Same as -display host:dpy.
-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.
This option specifies the width in characters that should be used in figuring out
how many columns to print. The default is 79.
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 appro-
priate) 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).
This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

DISPLAY must be set 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.
