NAME

       showfont - font dumper for X font server


SYNOPSIS

       showfont [ -options ... ] -fn pattern


DESCRIPTION

       Showfont  displays  data  about  a font that matches the given pattern.
       The information shown includes font information, font properties, char-
       acter metrics, and character bitmaps.

       The wildcard character "*" can be used to match any sequence of charac-
       ters (including none) in the font name, and "?" can be  used  to  match
       any  single  character.   The  "*" and "?" characters must be quoted to
       prevent them from being expanded by the shell.  If no pattern is given,
       "*" is assumed.
