-xrm command-line option

From The x3270 Wiki

The -xrm command-line option allows an individual resource (setting) to be changed.

In x3270, this is a standard Xt command-line option.


The syntax of an -xrm option is identical to a single line of a session file -- excepting, of course, comments lines and multi-line definitions.
