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.
