     appres - list X application resource database


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


     The appres program prints the resources seen by an applica-
     tion (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

     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 applica-
     tion, 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.
