  appres - list	X application resource database


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