Here's a little program that you can create to print font samples:

Naturally, once you have a starting program and DDS, you'll want to extend it. Many years ago, I did something similar -- I created a PRTF that had a whole bunch of output lines, all with constants that printed in different fonts, etc.

I've been thinking I need to do it again. That was maybe 15 years ago and it's long been lost.

In any case, by having such a setup, you can have a nice set of examples for long-term reference. There are really a whole bunch of fonts and options, even without adding optional resources. Keeping a printed reference is very handy.

Also, look at this command:

 ==>  wrkfntrsc  fntrsc( QFNTCPL/*all )

You can technically use *ALL instead of QFNTCPL as the library, but the font compatibility library is the most likely place such things will be if you have them. Note that the descriptions on the list may be useful.
