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


% 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.
