     XFS(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.6)		XFS(1)

     NAME
	  xfs - X font server

     SYNOPSIS
	  xfs [-config configuration_file] [-port tcp_port]

     DESCRIPTION
	  Xfs is the X Window System font server.  It supplies fonts
	  to X Window System display servers.

     STARTING THE SERVER
	  The server is usually run by a system administrator, and
	  started via boot files like /etc/rc.local.  Users may also
	  wish to start private font servers for specific sets of
	  fonts.

     OPTIONS
	  -config configuration_file
		  Specifies the configuration file the font server
		  will use. The default configuration file is
		  /var/X11/xfs/config.

	  -ls listen-socket
		  Specifies a file descriptor which is already set up
		  to be used as the listen socket.  This option is
		  only intended to be used by the font server itself
		  when automatically spawning another copy of itself
		  to handle additional connections.

	  -port tcp_port
		  Specifies the TCP port number on which the server
		  will listen for connections.	The default port
		  number is 7100.

     SIGNALS
	  SIGTERM This causes the font server to exit cleanly.

	  SIGUSR1 This signal is used to cause the server to re-read
		  its configuration file.

	  SIGUSR2 This signal is used to cause the server to flush any
		  cached data it may have.

	  SIGHUP  This signal is used to cause the server to reset,
		  closing all active connections and re-reading the
		  configuration file.

     CONFIGURATION
	  The configuration language is a list of keyword and value
	  pairs.  Each keyword is followed by an '=' and then the
	  desired value.

	  Recognized keywords include:

	  catalogue (list of string)
	       Ordered list of font path element names.	 Use of the
	       keyword "catalogue" is very misleading at present, the
	       current implementation only supports a single catalogue
	       ("all"), containing all of the specified fonts.

	  alternate-servers (list of string)
	       List of alternate servers for this font server.

	  client-limit (cardinal)
	       Number of clients this font server will support before
	       refusing service.  This is useful for tuning the load
	       on each individual font server.

	  clone-self (boolean)
	       Whether this font server should attempt to clone itself
	       when it reachs the client-limit.

	  default-point-size (cardinal)
	       The default pointsize (in decipoints) for fonts that
	       don't specify.  The default is 120.

	  default-resolutions (list of resolutions)
	       Resolutions the server supports by default.  This
	       information may be used as a hint for pre-rendering,
	       and substituted for scaled fonts which do not specify a
	       resolution.  A resolution is a comma-separated pair of
	       x and y resolutions in pixels per inch.	Multiple
	       resolutions are separated by commas.

	  error-file (string)
	       Filename of the error file.  All warnings and errors
	       will be logged here.

	  port (cardinal)
	       TCP port on which the server will listen for
	       connections.

	  use-syslog (boolean)
	       Whether syslog(3) (on supported systems) is to be used
	       for errors.

	  deferglyphs (string)
	       Set the mode for delayed fetching and caching of
	       glyphs.	Value is "none", meaning deferred glyphs is
	       disabled, "all", meaning it is enabled for all fonts,
	       and "16", meaning it is enabled only for 16-bits fonts.

     FONT SERVER NAMES
	  One of the following forms can be used to name a font server
	  that accepts TCP connections:

	      tcp/hostname:port
	      tcp/hostname:port/cataloguelist

	  The hostname specifies the name (or decimal numeric address)
	  of the machine on which the font server is running.  The
	  port is the decimal TCP port on which the font server is
	  listening for connections.  The cataloguelist specifies a
	  list of catalogue names, with '+' as a separator.

	  Examples: tcp/fs.x.org:7100, tcp/18.30.0.212:7101/all.

	  One of the following forms can be used to name a font server
	  that accepts DECnet connections:

	      decnet/nodename::font$objname
	      decnet/nodename::font$objname/cataloguelist

	  The nodename specifies the name (or decimal numeric address)
	  of the machine on which the font server is running.  The

     Page 3					     (printed 7/20/06)

     XFS(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.6)		XFS(1)

	  objname is a normal, case-insensitive DECnet object name.
	  The cataloguelist specifies a list of catalogue names, with
	  '+' as a separator.

	  Examples: DECnet/SRVNOD::FONT$DEFAULT,
	  decnet/44.70::font$special/symbols.
