Name

appres - list X application resource database

Synopsis

appres [ class [ instance ] ] [ -1 ] [ -V ] [ -toolkitoption ... ]

Description

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.
