d.font allows the user to select use of a specific text font for display of text on the graphics monitor. The GRASS program show.fonts.sh is a UNIX Bourne shell macro which names and displays the fonts that can be selected using d.font. If the user does not specify a font when using other GRASS programs that display text, the font type romans is used by default. The user can run this program either non-interactively or interactively. If the user specifies a font type name on the command line the program will run non-interactively. Alternately, the user can simply type d.font on the command line; in this case, the program will prompt the user for a display text font type. Parameter: font=name Name of a font type, from among the font types italicized below. Default: romans Options: (italized) cyrilc Cyrillic gothgbt Gothic Great Britain triplex gothgrt Gothic German triplex gothitt Gothic Italian triplex greekc Greek complex greekcs Greek complex script greekp Greek plain greeks Greek simplex italicc Italian complex italiccs Italian complex small italict Italian triplex romanc Roman complex romancs Roman complex small romand Roman duplex romanp Roman plain romans Roman simplex romant Roman triplex scriptc Script complex scripts Script simplex
The font type romans is the fastest font type to display to the graphics monitor.
