xlsatoms - 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
   unknown  atom  is  found.  If an explicit range is given, xlsatoms will
   try all atoms in the range,  regardless  of  whether  or  not  any  are

           atom <value,name> pair, printed in  that  order  (value  is  an
           unsigned  long  and  name is a char *).  Xlsatoms will supply a
           newline 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
