OCLOCK(1)                   General Commands Manual                  OCLOCK(1)

       oclock - round X clock

       oclock [-option ... ]

       Oclock simply displays the current time on an analog display.

       -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 use-
               fully 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.

               causes the clock to not reshape itself and ancestors to exactly
               fit the outline of the clock.

               causes  the  clock to consist only of the jewel, the hands, and
               the border.

       If you would like your clock to be viewable in color, include the  fol-
       lowing 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/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 attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |Availability   | x11/oclock       |
       |Stability      | Volatile         |
