       clock - display the time in an icon or window




       This  command  is  available  with  the  OpenWindows  environment.  For
       information about installing  OpenWindows,  refer  to  the  OpenWindows
       Installation and Start-Up Guide.


       clock is an OpenWindows XView utility that displays the current time in
       a window or icon. When the window is open, clock can display  the  time
       in   either  analog or digital format.  The clock window is scalable in
       either format.


       When the clock window is open, it has a floating menu  from  which  you
       can  bring  up  a  property  window.  From this property sheet, you can
       modify the display of the  tool  by  selecting  either  the  Analog  or
       Digital choice box.
                     On  the  analog  version,  this selection starts a second
                     hand on the face of the clock. On the digital version, it
                     adds two digits to the digital readout.
                     Turns  on  a  date  display  for  both analog and digital
                     versions of clock.


       If you reset the system time, clock will not reflect the new time until
       you change its window state from open to icon, or vice versa.  To reset
       the system time, see date (1V).

       The date display does not go well with the round clock face.

       Occasionally, when clock  is  uncovered,  the  face  will  be  visually
       corrupted. Use the Refresh button from the frame menu to repair.
