Using the defaults command

Advanced modification of preferences is achieved by the defaults command in the Terminal application.

In setting a preference you specify a descriptive key and it's given value with the following syntax:

defaults write net.glencode.Particulars key value

You can reset a key to its default value using:

defaults delete net.glencode.Particulars key

Or you can read the value of a key using:

defaults read net.glencode.Particulars key

When setting preferences for the Today Extension (Widget) use net.glencode.Particulars.Widget instead of net.glencode.Particulars.
