Traditional Chinese Solaris User's Guide

Specifying a Font at the Command Line

You can specify which font a Traditional Chinese OpenWindows application will use on a command line. When the current locale is zh_TW or zh_TW.BIG5, the command uses one of the defined font-set aliases instead (explained in the following section), for example:

system% cmdtool -font fontset_name & 

However, when the current locale is C, the command uses a font name and cannot use a font-set alias. The following shows a command using the long name of an ASCII character font:

system% cmdtool -font 
-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--9-80-100-100-c-60-iso8859-1 &
