A large number of X window resources can be set by a user to customize various aspects of the user interface. The best way to explore these is to examine the file
$PTOLEMY/lib/pigiXRes9 for the defaults. These defaults can typically be overridden in the user's .Xdefaults file, and incorporated into the X environment using the program
xrdb. For example,
changes the font in the
vem console window, menus, dialog boxes, etc., to something smaller than the default. Also,
changes the background in the
vem console window and dialog boxes to the color "antiqueWhite."
