     listres - list resources in widgets

     /usr/bin/listres [-option ...]

     The  listres program generates a list of a widget's resource
     database.   The  class  in  which  each  resource  is  first
     defined,  the  instance and class name, and the type of each
     resource is listed.  If no  specific  widgets  or  the  -all
     switch  are  given,  a  two-column  list of widget names and
     their class hierarchies is printed.

     Listres accepts all of the  standard  toolkit  command  line
     options along with those listed below:

     -all    This  option  indicates  that  listres  should print
             information for all known widgets and objects.

             This option indicates that resources that are inher-
             ited  from  a superclass should not be listed.  This
             is useful for determining which resources are new to
             a subclass.

             This option indicates that widgets should be identi-
             fied by the names  of  the  class  record  variables
             rather  than  the  class name given in the variable.
             This is useful for  distinguishing  subclasses  that
             have the same class name as their superclasses.

     -top name
             This  option  specifies the name of the widget to be
             treated as the top of the hierarchy.   Case  is  not
             significant, and the name may match either the class
             variable name or the class  name.   The  default  is

     -format printf-string
             This option specifies the printf-style format string
             to be used to print out the name,  instance,  class,
             and type of each resource.

     On  operating systems that do not support dynamic linking of
     run-time routines, this program must have all of  its  known
     widgets  compiled in.  The sources provide several tools for
     automating this process for various widget sets.
