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 (includ- ing 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. -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 col- umns. 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 display- ing 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 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 font systems). -fn pattern This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

DISPLAY to get the default host and display to use.
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.
