fc-cache, fonts.cache - create an index of FreeType font files in a directory
fc-cache [directory-name ...]
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 application startup when using the fontconfig library.
fonts.cache Maps file names to font properties. Read by the fontconfig library at application startup to locate appropriate fonts.
fc-cache is run automatically at system boot to ensure font caches are up to date via the fc-cache service. The fc-cache service is man- aged by the service management facility, smf(5), under the service identifier: svc:/application/font/fc-cache Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M). The ser- vice's status can be queried using the svcs(1) command.
