       dclock - digital clock


       dclock [ -cmjd ] [ -sslant ] [ -tthickness ] [ -frate ]


       Dclock displays a scalable digital clock.  The time is updated from the
       local host clock every minute as a  background  process.   The  current
       date is displayed across the top of the window in the format

       Sat Aug 16 1986

       (or  some  subset  of  such  if  there’s  not enough room).  Options to
       control the clock’s appearance, size and placement are as follows:

       -c              Display in  12-hour  format  (“civilian”  time)  —  the

       -m              Display in 24-hour format (“military” time).

       -jJohn’s flag.”  Puts a tail on the digit ‘9’.

       -d              Do  not  display the current date across the top of the
                       clock view.

       -b              Display a border (horizontal  line)  between  the  date
                       string and the time display.

       -T              Do not display the Time in the clock view (leaving just
                       the date).

       -sslant         Set the slant of the  digits.   A  slant  of  100  (the
                       maximum)  corresponds to a slant of one digit width.  A
                       slant of 0 (the minimum) is vertical.  Default is -s30.
                       A special form is -s, which is equivalent to -s0.

       -tthickness     Set  the  thickness  of  the digit segments.  Allowable
                       values are between 5 and 25.  A thickness of 25 results
                       in  segments  which  are one quarter (25%) of the digit
                       width. Default is -t15.

       -frate          Set the rate at which the segments fade when  the  time
                       changes.   A  value  of  0 is fastest and 4 is slowest.
                       Default is  -f4.   A  special  form  is  -f,  which  is
                       equivalent to -f0.

       To exit dclock, type a ‘q’ in the window.
