This hyperlink references the execution alias named, xclockAlias. The resource definition for the alias is shown in the section "Execution Aliases".

The link starts the xclock program running in the background. The phrase "Start the Clock" becomes the hyperlink. Clicking the hyperlink runs the xclock program in a separate window. To end the program, close the window.

<link "DtHelpExecAlias xclockAlias" Execute>Start the Clock<\link>
