XDPYINFO(1)         UNIX Programmer's Manual          XDPYINFO(1)

NAME

     xdpyinfo - display information utility for X

SYNOPSIS

     xdpyinfo [-display displayname] [-queryExtensions] [-ext
     extension-name]

DESCRIPTION

     Xdpyinfo is a utility for displaying information about an X
     server.  It is used to examine the capabilities of a server,
     the predefined values for various parameters used in commun-
     icating between clients and the server, and the different
     types of screens and visuals that are available.

     By default, numeric information (opcode, base event, base
     error) about protocol extensions is not displayed.  This
     information can be obtained with the -queryExtensions
     option.  Use of this option on servers that dynamically load
     extensions will likely cause all possible extensions to be
     loaded, which can be slow and can consume significant server
     resources.

     Detailed information about a particular extension is
     displayed with the -ext extensionName option.  If extension-
     Name is all, information about all extensions supported by
     both xdpyinfo and the server is displayed.

ENVIRONMENT

     DISPLAY To get the default host, display number, and screen.
