SYNOPSIS
       fc-match [ -svV? ] [ --sort ] [ --verbose ] [ --version ] [ --help ] [
       font-pattern ]


DESCRIPTION
       fc-match matches font-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.
       With --verbose, the whole font pattern for each match is printed,
       otherwise only the file, family and style are printed..
