xapm - display Advanced Power Management (APM) BIOS information
xapm [ ... ]
xapm puts up an X window that displays the remaining battery life. The left side of the
window contains a printed time or percentage, and the right side of the window contains a
bar indicating the percentage. Clicking on the left side of the window will toggle the
display between time and percent.
OPTIONS AND RESOURCES
In addition to standard Xt options, the following options are available:
-V Print version and exit.
The color of the bar when the battery percentage is above highvalue. Defaults to
The color of the bar when the battery percentage is between lowvalue and highvalue.
Defaults to "yellow". (*lowColor)
The color of the bar when the battery percentage is below lowvalue. Defaults to
"red". This color is also used to flash the alphanumeric part of the display when
the power status is critical. (*criticalCOlor)
Set highvalue. The default is 50. (*highValue)
Set lowvalue. The default is 10. (*lowValue)
The color of the printed display when charging. The default is "blue". Use -fore-
ground to change the color used when on battery power. (*chargingColor)
Sets the number of seconds delay between each update. The default is 1. (*delay)
Display percentage on startup, instead of time remaining. (*percent, boolean)
There is no way to inhibit the alphanumeric display or the bar display. When the battery
percentage is low, using a bright color to warn you of impending doom may be futile
because the bar is too short. Because of the form widget's desire to maintain propor-
tions, dynamic resizing of the window may not do what you want it to do.
