The SCO OpenServer Graphical Environment provides a mechanism that allows you
to specify characteristics
that take effect every time you run a client. Almost
every feature of a client program can be controlled by
changing the value associated with a variable called
a resource. You can specify how a client looks on the screen:
its size and placement, its border and background color or pattern,
whether the window has a scroll bar, and so on. Some applications
even allow you to redefine the keystrokes or pointer actions
used to control the application.
You can also use command line options to customize your clients.

can change with command line options.

This chapter is provided as a reference for understanding
what resources are and how they are used. Following chapters
discuss the specifics of changing resources for colors,
fonts, window geometry and so forth.
