NAME
       xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X

SYNOPSIS
       xlsfonts [-display host:dpy] [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w width] [-n columns] [-u]
       [-o] [-fn pattern]
       xlsfonts -printer printername [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w width] [-n columns]
       [-u] [-o] [-r resolution] [-b] [-B] [-g] [-G] [-x mode] [-X mode] [-fn pattern]

DESCRIPTION
       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
       shell.

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

       -printer printername
	      This option specifies the Xprint printer to contact.

       -d host:dpy
	      Same as -display host:dpy.

       -p printername
	      Same as -printer printername.

       -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 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).

       -r resolutionname
	      Set print resolution name (usually values like 300dpi or 300x600, see output of
	      xplsprinters).  This may alter the output of xlsfonts if there are printer fonts
	      which get enabled/disabled on per-resolution basis by the DDX.

	      (printer mode only)

       -b     List printer builtin fonts.  This is the same as -x xp-list-internal-printer-fonts.

	      (printer mode only)

       -B     Do not list printer builtin fonts.  This is the same as -X xp-list-inter-
	      nal-printer-fonts.

	      (printer mode only)

       -g     List glyph fonts.  This is the same as -x xp-list-glyph-fonts.

	      (printer mode only)

       -G     Do not list glyph fonts.	This is the same as -X xp-list-glyph-fonts.

	      (printer mode only)

       -x mode
	      Enable listfont mode mode.

	      Supported modes are:

	      xp-listinternal-printer-fonts
		     If xp-listinternal-printer-fonts was set (via option -b or -x xp-listinter-
		     nal-printer-fonts xlsfonts will include all of the fonts defined as internal
		     printer fonts.

	      xp-list-glyph-fonts
		     If xp-list-glyph-fonts was set (via option -g or -x xp-list-glyph-fonts)
		     xlsfonts will include all of the fonts available to the server which have
		     glyphs associated with them.

       The default value is implicitly determined by the ddx driver to be the all of the list-
       fonts modes specified in the xp-listfonts-modes-supported printer attribute.

       The value of xp-listfonts-modes-supported and xp-listfonts-modes (the defaults) can be
       looked-up via xplsprinters(1).

       (printer mode only)

       -X mode
	      Disable listfont mode mode.  See option -x for a list of valid mode values.

	      (printer mode only)

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

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY
	      DISPLAY must be set to get the default host and display to use.

       XPSERVERLIST
	      XPSERVERLIST must be set for the -printer option identifying the available Xprint
	      servers.	See Xprint(7) for more details.

BUGS
       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.
