 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
	      reverseVideo 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

	      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.

	      Specifies whether or not a bell should be rung on the hour and

	      The default is 8.

	      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.
