This operation returns a value that indicates whether the host system supports W$FONT. If it does not, WFONT-STATUS is set to WFONTERR-UNSUPPORTED (value "0"). This indicates that the host system does not use fonts (as would be normal for a non-graphical host). A return value of WFONT-FONT-SUPPORT (value "1") indicates that fonts are supported, but the WFONT-CHOOSE-FONT operation is not available. Finally, a value of WFONT-FULL-SUPPORT (value "2") indicates that all W$FONT operations are supported on the system.

The FONT-HANDLE and WFONT-DATA parameters are not used with this op-code and should be omitted.
