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
           usefully 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
   following 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
