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

       fc-match - match available fonts

       fc-match  [  -asvVh ]  [ --all ]  [ --sort ]  [ --verbose ]  [  [ -f format ]  [ --format format ]  ]  [ --ver-
       sion ]  [ --help ]

        [ pattern  [ element... ]   ]

       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.

       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.

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

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