NAME

showfigfonts.pl - prints samples of the available FIGlet fonts

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>showfigfonts.plB> [ <B>-DB> ] [ <B>-d=B>fontdirectory ] [ <B>-helpB> ] [ <B>-w=B>outputwidth ]

DESCRIPTION

This will recusrively fetch fonts displaying a sample (the name of the font) of each in alphabetical order.

OPTIONS

<B>-DB> <B>-EB> <B>-EB> is the default, and a no-op.

<B>-DB> switches to the German (ISO 646-DE) character set. Turns ‘[’, ‘\’ and ‘]’ into umlauted A, O and U, respectively. ‘{’, ‘|’ and ‘}’ turn into the respective lower case versions of these. ‘~’ turns into s-z.

These options are deprecated, which means they may soon be removed.

<B>-dB>=fontdirectory Change the default font directory. FIGlet looks for fonts first in the default directory and then in the current directory. If the <B>-dB> option is not specified, FIGlet uses the directory that was specified when it was compiled. To find out which directory this is, use the <B>-I2B> option.
<B>-wB>=outputwidth These options control the outputwidth, or the screen width FIGlet assumes when formatting its output. FIGlet uses the outputwidth to determine when to break lines and how to center the output. Normally, FIGlet assumes 80 columns so that people with wide terminals won’t annoy the people they e-mail FIGlet output to. <B>-wB> sets the outputwidth to the given integer. An outputwidth of 1 is a special value that tells FIGlet to print each non- space character, in its entirety, on a separate line, no matter how wide it is. Another special outputwidth is -1, it means to not warp.

ENVIRONMENT

showfigfonts.pl will make use of these environment variables if present
FIGLIB The default location of fonts.
