NAME
oclock - round X clock SYNOPSIS
oclock [-option ... ] DESCRIPTION
Oclock simply displays the current time on an analog display. OPTIONS
-fg color choose a different color for the both hands and the jewel of the clock -bg color choose a different color for the background. -jewel color choose a different color for the jewel on the clock. -minute color choose a different color for the minute hand of the clock. -hour color choose a different color for the hour hand of the clock. -backing { WhenMapped Always NotUseful } selects an appropriate level of backing store. -geometry geometry define the initial window geometry; see X(7). -display display specify the display to use; see X(7). -bd color choose a different color for the window border. -bw width choose a different width for the window border. As the Clock widget changes its border around quite a bit, this is most usefully set to zero. -shape causes the clock to use the Shape extension to create an oval window. This is the default unless the shapeWindow resource is set to false. -noshape causes the clock to not reshape itself and ancestors to exactly fit the outline of the clock. -transparent causes the clock to consist only of the jewel, the hands, and the border. COLORS
If you would like your clock to be viewable in color, include the following in the #ifdef COLOR section you read with xrdb: *customization: -color This will cause oclock to pick up the colors in the app-defaults color customization file: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Clock-color. Below are the default colors: Clock*Background: grey Clock*BorderColor: light blue Clock*hour: yellow Clock*jewel: yellow Clock*minute: yellow SEE ALSO

NAME
xclock - analog / digital clock for X SYNOPSIS
xclock [ -help ] [ -analog ] [ -digital ] [ -chime ] [ -hd color ] [ -hl color ] [ -update seconds ] [ -padding number ] DESCRIPTION
The xclock program displays the time in analog or digital form. The time is continuously updated at a frequency which may be specified by the user. OPTIONS
Xclock accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with the additional options listed below: -help This option indicates that a brief summary of the allowed options should be printed on the standard error. -analog This option indicates that a conventional 12 hour clock face with tick marks and hands should be used. This is the default. -digital or -d This option indicates that a 24 hour digital clock should be used. -chime This option indicates that the clock should chime once on the half hour and twice on the hour. -hands color (or -hd color) This option specifies the color of the hands on an analog clock. The default is black. -highlight color (or -hl color) This option specifies the color of the edges of the hands on an analog clock, and is only useful on color displays. The default is black. -update seconds This option specifies the frequency in seconds at which xclock should update its display. If the clock is obscured and then exposed, it will be updated immediately. A value of 30 seconds or less will enable a second hand on an analog clock. The default is 60 seconds. -padding number This option specifies the width in pixels of the padding between the window border and clock text or picture. The default is 10 on a digital clock and 8 on an analog clock. X DEFAULTS
This program uses the Clock widget. It understands all of the core resource names and classes as well as: width (class Width) Specifies the width of the clock. The default for analog clocks is 164 pixels; the default for digital clocks is whatever is needed to hold the clock when displayed in the chosen font. height (class Height) Specifies the height of the clock. The default for analog clocks is 164 pixels; the default for digital clocks is whatever is needed to hold the clock when displayed in the chosen font. update (class Interval) Specifies the frequency in seconds at which the time should be redisplayed. foreground (class Foreground) Specifies the color for the tic marks. The default is depends on whether reverseVideo is specified. If reverseVideo is specified the default is lwhite, otherwise the default is black. hands (class Foreground) Specifies the color of the insides of the clock's hands. The default is depends on whether reverseVideo is specified. If reverseV- ideo is specified the default is lwhite, otherwise the default is black. highlight (class Foreground) Specifies the color used to highlight the clock's hands. The default is depends on whether reverseVideo is specified. If reverseVideo is specified the default is lwhite, otherwise the default is black. analog (class Boolean) Specifies whether or not an analog clock should be used instead of a digital one. The default is True. chime (class Boolean) Specifies whether or not a bell should be rung on the hour and half hour. padding (class Margin) Specifies the amount of internal padding in pixels to be used. The default is 8. font (class Font) Specifies the font to be used for the digital clock. Note that variable width fonts currently will not always display correctly. WIDGETS
In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy of the widgets which compose xclock. In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name. XClock xclock Clock clock ENVIRONMENT
DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property. FILES
<XRoot>/lib/X11/app-defaults/XClock - specifies required resources SEE ALSO
X(1), xrdb(1), time(3C) BUGS
Xclock believes the system clock. When in digital mode, the string should be centered automatically. AUTHORS
