Is there a way to change the font color of an xterm session on-the-fly?
Say for example I started xterm like so:
$ xterm [other options] -bg black -fg red &
and I got tired of the red-on-black looking cool but being a hair too
difficult to read.. Am I doomed to close the current session and start a
new one with -fg [my new color choice] ?
Aha! After Googling, I found out about editres. Nifty! However... I'd
like to be able to do it from the command-line, rather than launching
another x-app to handle it. Is there a command-line tool to change widget
resource values? There must be, I mean how often in the *nix world does the
GUI app come before the command-line app? heh..
