X resource tutorial / reference?

X resource tutorial / reference?

Post by Len Philp » Thu, 09 Mar 2000 04:00:00

Can anyone point me at a general tutorial / reference on X resources,
their usage, syntax, scope, etc., etc.? Obviously, they're very
important in the fine-tuning of X applications, but I know next to
nothing about them.

I'm a little familiar with xrdb, fontsel, .Xdefaults, etc., less
familiar with editres and know of only a few application-specific
resources. Specifically, right now I'm working with NEdit and am trying
to track down a keybinding issue, but I'd like to know more about it
