FC-MATCH(1)                                                        FC-MATCH(1)

NAME
       fc-match - match available fonts

SYNOPSIS
       fc-match [ -asvVh ]  [ --all ]  [ --sort ]  [ --verbose ]  [  [ -f
       format ]  [ --format format ]  ]  [ --version ]  [ --help ]

        [ pattern  [ element... ]   ]

DESCRIPTION
       fc-match matches pattern (empty pattern by default) using the normal
       fontconfig matching rules to find the best font available. If --sort is
       given, the sorted list of best matching fonts is displayed.  The --all
       option works like --sort except that no pruning is done on the list of
       fonts.

       If any elements are specified, only those are printed.  Otherwise short
       file name, family, and style are printed, unless verbose output is
       requested.

OPTIONS
       This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is
       included below.

       -a     Displays sorted list of best matching fonts, but do not do any
              pruning on the list.

       -s     Displays sorted list of best matching fonts.

       -v     Print verbose output of the whole font pattern for each match,
              or elements if any is provided.

       -f     Format output according to the format specifier format.

       -V     Show version of the program and exit.

       -h     Show summary of options.
