- xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X
- xlsfonts [- options ...] [- fn pattern]
- 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.
- - display host:dpy
- This option specifies the X server to contact.
- - I
- Lists some attributes of the font on one line in addition to its name.
- - II
- Lists font properties in addition to - I output.
- - III
- Lists character metrics in addition to - II output.
- - m
- 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
- - 1
- This option indicates that listings should use a single column. This is the same as - n
- - w width
- This option specifies the width in characters that should be used in figuring out how

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 appropriate) rather than a ListFonts. This is useful if ListFonts
or ListFontsWithInfo fail to list a known font (as is the case with some scaled

- Doing "xlsfonts -1" 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.
