appres

list X application resource database

appres [class [instance]] [-1] [-V] [toolkitoptions]

The appres program prints the resources seen by an application (or subhierarchy of an application) with the specified class and instance names. It can be used to determine which resources a particular program will load. For example,

% appres XTerm 

will list the resources that any xterm program will load. If no application class is specified, the class -AppResTest- is used.

To match a particular instance name, specify an instance name explicitly after the class name, or use the normal Xt toolkit option. For example,

% appres XTerm myxterm 
or
% appres XTerm -name myxterm 

To list resources that match a subhierarchy of an application, specify hierarchical class and instance names. The number of class and instance components must be equal, and the instance name should not be specified with a toolkit option. For example,

% appres Xman.TopLevelShell.Form xman.topBox.form 

will list the resources of widgets of xman topBox hierarchy. To list just the resources matching a specific level in the hierarchy, use the -1 option. For example,

% appres XTerm.VT100 xterm.vt100 -1 

will list the resources matching the xterm vt100 widget.

The -V option prints the appres command version and exits.
