 NAME
      xfbrows - X11 font browser [Version 2.1]

 SYNOPSIS
      xfbrows [-display disp] [-iconic]
              [-geometry geom] [-icongeom geom]
              [-bg background] [-fg foreground] [-bw width]
              [-fs fontsubstring]

 DESCRIPTION
      Xfbrows is a simple font browser for X11.

      When the window opens, it will display all fonts the server knows in a
      scrollable list.

      Simply click a fontname (or type one in, with wildcard too) and a
      window will come up showing you the font in a scrollable list. Click
      any character in the list to find out the ASCII-value of this
      character. Click the OK-Button to leave this window.

      Clicking ABOUT will display a window showing author and copyright
      information.  Click OK to leave this window.

      You can specify a string to limit the fonts to be included in the list
      by typing this string and clicking the LIMIT-Button.  For example: to
      show only the fonts with "medium" in the name, specify "*medium*" in
      the typing line and then click LIMIT. If the font list is limited, you
      can't select a fontname by typing it's name. Click COMPLETE to
      complete the font list.

      Click QUIT to leave the application.

 OPTIONS
      Xfbrows accepts all X Toolkit command line options listed below:

      -display    Sets the display to the specified name (Resource name:
                  display, Type: string, Default: none).

      -geometry   Specifies the xfbrows position on the screen. You can't
                  resize the window (Resource name: geometry, Type: string,
                  Default: none).

      -icongeom   Specifies the xfbrows icon position on the screen. Only
                  positive values are excepted, because the size of the icon
                  depends on the window manager (Resource name: icongeom,
                  Type: string, Default: none).

      -fg         Sets the foreground color for the windows (Resource name:
                  foreground, Type: color, Default: black).
