FcFontSort − Return list of matching fonts

#include <fontconfig.h>

FcFontSet * FcFontSort (FcConfig *config, FcPattern *p,
FcBool trim, FcCharSet **csp, FcResult *result);

     Returns the list of fonts sorted by closeness to p.  If
trim is FcTrue, elements in the list which don’t include
Unicode coverage not provided by earlier elements in the
list are elided.  The union of Unicode coverage of all of
the fonts is returned in csp, if csp is not NULL.  This
function should be called only after FcConfigSubstitute and
FcDefaultSubstitute have been called for p; otherwise the
results will not be correct.

     The returned FcFontSet references FcPattern structures
which may be shared by the return value from multiple
FcFontSort calls, applications must not modify these
patterns.  Instead, they should be passed, along with p to
FcFontRenderPrepare which combines them into a complete

     The FcFontSet returned by FcFontSort is destroyed by
caling FcFontSetDestroy.
