fslsfonts - list fonts served by X font server
fslsfonts [-options...] [-fn pattern]
This option specifies the X font server to contact. Lists
some attributes of the font on one line in addition to its
name. Lists font properties in addition to -l output.
Supported for compatibility with xlsfonts, but output is
the same as for -ll. This option indicates that long
listings should also print the minimum and maximum bounds
of each font. This option indicates that listings should
use multiple columns. This is the same as -n 0. This
option indicates that listings should use a single column.
This is the same as -n 1. This option specifies the width
in characters that should be used in figuring out how many
columns to print. The default is 79. This option specifies
the number of columns to use in displaying the output.
The default is 0, which will attempt to fit as many
columns of font names into the number of character specified
by -w width. This option indicates that the output
should be left unsorted.
The fslsfonts program 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
The "*" and "?" characters must be quoted to prevent them
from being expanded by the shell.
to get the default host and port to use.
Doing fslsfonts -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.
