NAME
       appres - list X application resource database

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

DESCRIPTION
       The appres program prints the resources seen by an application (or sub-
       hierarchy of an application) with  the  specified  class  and  instance
       names.   It  can be used to determine which resources a particular pro-
       gram will load.  For example,

            % appres  XTerm

       will list the resources that any xterm program will load.  If no appli-
       cation class is specified, the class -AppResTest- is used.

       To  match  a particular instance name, specify an instance name explic-
       itly 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.

       The -V option prints the appres command version and exits.
