FC-MATCH(1)															       FC-MATCH(1)

NAME
fc-match - match available fonts SYNOPSIS
fc-match [ -asvVh ] [ --all ] [ --sort ] [ --verbose ] [ [ -f format ] [ --format format ] ] [ --version ] [ --help ] [ pattern [ element... ] ] DESCRIPTION
fc-match matches pattern (empty pattern by default) using the normal fontconfig matching rules to find the best font available. If --sort is given, the sorted list of best matching fonts is displayed. The --all option works like --sort except that no pruning is done on the list of fonts. If any elements are specified, only those are printed. Otherwise short file name, family, and style are printed, unless verbose output is requested. OPTIONS
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -a Displays sorted list of best matching fonts, but do not do any pruning on the list. -s Displays sorted list of best matching fonts. -v Print verbose output of the whole font pattern for each match, or elements if any is provided. -f Format output according to the format specifier format. -V Show version of the program and exit. -h Show summary of options. pattern Displays fonts matching pattern (uses empty pattern by default). element If set, the element property is displayed for matching fonts.

FC-CACHE(1)															       FC-CACHE(1)

NAME
fc-cache - build font information cache files SYNOPSIS
fc-cache [ -frsvVh ] [ --force ] [ --really-force ] [ --system-only ] [ --verbose ] [ --version ] [ --help ] [ dir... ] DESCRIPTION
fc-cache scans the font directories on the system and builds font information cache files for applications using fontconfig for their font handling. 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 up application startup when using the fontconfig library. Note that fc-cache must be executed once per architecture to generate font information customized for that architecture. OPTIONS
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -f Force re-generation of apparently up-to-date cache files, overriding the timestamp checking. -r Erase all existing cache files and rescan. -s Only scan system-wide directories, omitting the places located in the user's home directory. -v Display status information while busy. -h Show summary of options. -V Show version of the program and exit. dir Directory to scan for fonts. FILES
%cachdir%/*-%arch%.cache-2 These files are generated by fc-cache and contain maps from file names to font properties. They are read by the fontconfig library at application startup to locate appropriate fonts. SEE ALSO
