X Display Preferences
Log looks in your .Xresources file for geometry information. If set
properly, this allows windows of a certain size to be automatically
placed at a particular place at every invocation of log; manual
placement of windows is no longer necessary. This feature was added by
Jim Clark at Harvard. Adding these lines to your .Xresources file:
will result in good placement and sizing for the color monitors
shipped with SPARC IPC's; for other screens, charge the numbers after
"+" signs for new positions, and change the numbers between the "x"
for modify the size of the mylib window. The newcrt window cannot be
modified; log expects it to be a fixed size.
Psys now senses if a display screen is black and white, and tries to
use stipple instead of colors. However, there are times where you want
to force the tools to display in black and white, even if the display
screen is color. To force a black and white display, add this line
to your .Xresources file:
To make the change take effect, run "xrdb -merge .Xresources". If
the display doesn't change, try exiting your X server and restarting.
Black and white support was provided by Tor Sverre Lande (Oslo), and
the .Xresources flag was added by Mike Godfrey (Stanford).
