NAME

  appres - list	X application resource database

SYNOPSIS

  appres [class	[instance]] [-1] [toolkitoptions]

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.
