       xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X

       xlsfonts [-options ...] [-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

       -display host:dpy
	       This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -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.

       -w width
	       This  option specifies the width in characters that should be used in figuring out
	       how many columns to print.  The default is 79.

       -n columns
	       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
	       appropriate)  rather  than  a  ListFonts.   This  is  useful if ListFonts or List-
	       FontsWithInfo fail to list a known font (as is the case with some scaled font sys-

       -fn pattern
	       This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

       DISPLAY 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.
