+accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with the
+additional options listed below:

+(without the leading dash). "file" is a string type, "saveLines" an
+integer, and the remaining options are booleans.
+In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy of
+the widgets which compose \fIxconsole\fR. In the notation below,
+indentation indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name
+is given first, followed by the widget instance name.
