NAME

avg_showfont - font enumeration and preview tool

SYNOPSIS

avg_showfont [ fontname] [text]

DESCRIPTION

List available font faces and generate preview of their variants.
If invoked without arguments, avg_showfont generates a list of font family names and prints them on the console. Fontconfig is used for font discovery. Fonts are searched for in the system font path and in $PWD/fonts.
If fontname is specified, the chosen font is displayed in a window, with one line for each available variant.
If supplied, the optional text argument is used instead of the variant name in the sample text.
