list interned atoms defined on server


xlsatoms [-options ...]


Xlsatoms lists the interned atoms. By default, all atoms starting from 1 (the lowest atom value defined by the protocol) are listed until un‐ known atom is found. If an explicit range is given, xlsatoms will try all atoms in the range, regardless of whether or not any are undefined.


-display dpy This option specifies the X server to which to connect. -format string This option specifies a printf-style string used to list each atom pair, printed in that order (value is an un‐ signed long and name is a char *). Xlsatoms will supply a new‐ line at the end of each line. The default is %ld\t%s. -range [low]-[high] This option specifies the range of atom values to check. If low is not given, a value of 1 assumed. If high is not given, xlsatoms will stop at the first undefined atom at or above low. -name string This option specifies the name of an atom to list. If the atom does not exist, a message will be printed on the standard er‐ ror. -version Print out the program version and exit.
