listres - list resources in widgets


listres [-option ...]


The listres(1) program generates a list of a widget's resource database. The list includes the class in which each resource is first defined, the instance and class name, and the type of each resource. If no specific widgets or the -all switch is given, a two-column list of widget names and their class hierarchies is printed.


The listres(1) utility accepts all of the standard toolkit command-line options. It also accepts those provided in the following list:

This option indicates that listres(1) should print information for all known widgets and objects.
This option indicates that resources inherited 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 identified 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 can match either the class variable name or the class name. The default is "core".
-format printf-string
This option specifies the printf(3)-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.
