       fc-cache - build font information cache files

       fc-cache [ -fsvV? ] [ --force ] [ --system-only ] [ --verbose ] [ --version ] [ --help ] [
       dirs ]

       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.  On a subsequent run, fc-cache will augment the cache
       information files with the information for the new architecture.

       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
	      Force  re-generation of apparently up-to-date cache files, overriding the timestamp

       -s --system-only
	      Only scan system-wide directories, omitting the places located in the  user's  home

       -v --verbose
	      Display status information while busy.

       -? --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -V --version
	      Show version of the program and exit.

       dirs   A list of directories to scan for fonts.

	      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.

       fc-list (1).
