list X application resource database


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


The appres program prints the resources seen by an application (or sub‐ hierarchy of an application) with the specified class and instance names. It can be used to determine which resources a particular pro‐ gram will load. For example, % appres XTerm will list the resources that any xterm program will load. If no appli‐ cation class is specified, the class -AppResTest- is used. To match a particular instance name, specify an instance name explic‐ itly 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 in‐ stance 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.
