       showconsolefont - Show the current EGA/VGA console screen font

SYNOPSIS         top

       showconsolefont [ -V | --version ] [ -v ] [ -i ] [ -C console ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The showconsolefont command outputs the current console font to
       stdout. The option -v prints additional information, while the
       option -V prints the program version number. The option -i
       doesn't print out the font table, just shows ROWSxCOLSxCOUNT and
       exits.  On Linux 2.6.1 and later, the option -C allows one to
       indicate the console involved. Its argument is a pathname.
