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

NAME
       fc-match - match available fonts

SYNOPSIS
       fc-match [ -asvVh ]  [ --all ]  [ --sort ]  [ --verbose ]  [  [ -f for-
       mat ]  [ --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.

       pattern
              Displays fonts matching pattern (uses empty pattern by default).

       element
              If set, the element property is displayed for matching fonts.
