NAME
       FcFileScan - scan a font file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <fontconfig.h>

       FcBool FcFileScan(FcFontSet *set);
       (FcStrSet *dirs);
       (FcFileCache *cache);
       (FcBlanks *blanks);
       (const FcChar8 *file);
       (FcBool force);
       .fi

DESCRIPTION
       Scans  a  single  file  and  adds all fonts found to set.  If force is FcTrue, then the file is scanned even if
       associated information is found in cache. If file is a directory, it is added to dirs. Whether fonts are  found
       depends  on  fontconfig policy as well as the current configuration. Internally, fontconfig will ignore BDF and
       PCF fonts which are not in Unicode (or the effectively equivalent ISO Latin-1) encoding as those are not usable
       by  Unicode-based  applications.  The  configuration can ignore fonts based on filename or contents of the font
       file itself. Returns FcFalse if any of the fonts cannot be added (due to allocation failure). Otherwise returns
       FcTrue.

VERSION
       Fontconfig version 2.8.0
