Chapter 8: X Resources and the Graphical Interface
Resource setting - general procedure
Application specific resources
If you plan to modify an application-specific resource, you should look in the
HP64_Debug file for information about that resource.
If the RESOURCE_MANAGER property exists (as is the case with
HP VUE), copy the complete HP64_Debug file, or just the part you are
interested in, to a temporary file. Modify the resource in your temporary file
and save the file. Then, merge the temporary file into the
RESOURCE_MANAGER property with the xrdb -merge < filename>
If the RESOURCE_MANAGER property does not exist, copy the complete
HP64_Debug file, or just the part you are interested in, to your .Xdefaults file.
Modify the resource in your .Xdefaults file and save the file.
Finally, if the debugger's graphical interface is currently executing, you must
exit and restart the interface for the change to have any effect.
If you plan to modify a general resource that could not be found in the
HP64_Debug file, look to the scheme files for information about that
resource. A general discussion of the kinds of information found in the
scheme files can be found in the previous "Scheme files augment other
Copy the appropriate scheme file to one of the alternative directories and
make the modifications there. (If you are using $XAPPLRESDIR, make sure
the variable is set and exported.) Save the file. If the debugger's graphical
interface is currently executing, you must exit the application and restart it to
see the results of your change.
