28 WindowMaker uses a defaults database for storing various information, like configurations and other data that must be
29 kept between sessions (like the list of applications of a saved session). The defaults database is stored as
30 <i>property lists</i> in the $(HOME)/GNUstep/Defaults directory. Each file in the $(HOME)/GNUstep/Defaults directory
31 contains data that belongs to a specific <i>domain</i>.<br />
32 <br />
33 Any application can use the defaults database to store its information. Generally an application will have one or more
34 <i>domains</i> that belong to it.<br />

41 The syntax of the property list is simple, but, if you need to change it manually you must take care not to leave any
42 syntax errors.<br />

44 The EBNF for the property list is the following:<br />

133 Note that all strings that have non-alphabetic or numeric characters (like a dot ``.'' or the asterisk ``*'' are
134 enclosed by double quotes. Strings with only alphanumeric characters may or may not be enclosed in double quotes, as
135 they will not make any difference.<br />

1454 <h3><a name="4.1.4">4.1.4 Window Attributes</a></h3><a name="4.1.4"></a><br />
1455 <br />
1456 Window attributes are stored in the $(HOME)/GNUstep/Defaults/WMWindowAttributes file.<br />
1457 <br />
1458 The contents of this file is a dictionary of attribute dictionaries keyed by window names. Like this:<br />
1459 <br />
1460 <pre>
1461 <font face="Courier New, Courier">
1463 "*" = {
1464 Icon = "defaultAppIcon.xpm";
1466 "xterm.XTerm" = {
1467 Icon = "xterm.xpm";
1469 xconsole = {
1470 Omnipresent = YES;
1471 NoTitlebar = YES;
1472 KeepOnTop = NO;
1475 </font>
1476 </pre>Window names are in the form<sup>1</sup>:<br />
1477 <br />
1478 &lt;window instance name&gt;.&lt;window class name&gt;<br />
1479 <br />
1480 OR<br />
1481 <br />
1482 &lt;window instance name&gt;<br />
1483 <br />
1484 OR<br />
1485 <br />
1486 &lt;window class name&gt;<br />
1487 <br />
1488 <br />
1489 Placing an asterisk as the window name means that the values set for that key are to be used as default values for all
1490 windows. So, since xconsole does not specify an Icon attribute, it will use the default value, which in the above
1491 example is defaultAppIcon.xpm.<br />
1492 <br />
1493 <hr />
1494 <font size="-1"><sup>1</sup> You can get the values for these information by running the <font face=
1495 "Courier New, Courier">xprop</font> utility on the desired window. When you do that, it will show the following line,
1496 among other things:<br />
1497 <br />
1498 <font face="Courier New, Courier">WM_CLASS(STRING) = "xterm", "XTerm"</font><br />
1499 <br />
1500 The first string (xterm) is the window instance name and the second (XTerm) the window class name.}</font>
1501 <hr />
1503 <h3><b>Options:</b></h3><br />
