DESCRIPTION

       The  xarclock program displays the time in analog or digital, reverse or normal form.  The
       time is continuously updated at a frequency which may be  specified  by  the  user.   This
       program is based on the program xlock(1) that is distributed together with the X11 release
       and is nothing more than a wrapper around the Athena Clock widget.

       This program is  an  extension  of  the  standard  X  clock  widget.   New  features  are:
       Configurable direction of rotation and font support in analog mode.

OPTIONS

       Xarclock  accepts  all  of  the  standard  X  Toolkit  command line options along with the
       additional options listed below:

       -roman This option specifies that roman digits should be used on an analog clock.

       -arabic
              This option specifies that arabic digits should be used on an analog  clock.   This
              is the default

       -south This  option  specifies  the direction the clock will turn, on the southern half of
              the earth the 3, early afternoon, is on the left side.  This is the default.

       -north This option specifies that the clock will behave like xclock(1).

       -analog
              This option indicates that a conventional 12 hour clock face with  tick  marks  and
              hands should be used.  This is the default.

       -digital (or -d)
              This option indicates that a 24 hour digital clock should be used.

       -chime This  option  indicates that the clock should chime once on the half hour and twice
              on the hour.

       -hd color (or -hands color)
              This option specifies the color of the hands on an analog clock.   The  default  is
              black.

       -hl color (or -highlight color)
              This  option  specifies the color of the edges of the hands on an analog clock, and
              is only useful on color displays.  The default is black.

       -fn fontname
              This option sets the name of the used fonts on the analog clock to fontname.

       -help  This option indicates that a brief summary of the allowed options should be printed
              on the standard error.

       -padding pixels
              This  option specifies the width in pixels of the padding between the window border
              and clock text or picture.  The default is 10 on a digital clock and 8 on an analog
              clock.

       -update seconds
              This  option  specifies  the frequency in seconds at which xclock should update its
              display.   If  the  clock  is  obscured  and  then  exposed,  it  will  be  updated
              immediately.   A  value  of  less  than  30 seconds will enable a second hand on an
              analog clock.  The default is 60 seconds.

X DEFAULTS

       This program uses the Athena Clock widget.  It understands all of the core resource  names
       and classes as well as:

       width (class Width)
              Specifies the width of the clock.  The default for analog clocks is 164 pixels; the
              default for digital clocks is whatever is needed to hold the clock  when  displayed
              in the chosen font.

       height (class Height)
              Specifies  the  height  of the clock.  The default for analog clocks is 164 pixels;
              the default for digital clocks is  whatever  is  needed  to  hold  the  clock  when
              displayed in the chosen font.

       update (class Interval)
              Specifies the frequency in seconds at which the time should be redisplayed.

       foreground (class Foreground)
              Specifies  the  color  for  the  tic  marks.  The  default  is  depends  on whether
              reverseVideo is specified.  If reverseVideo is specified  the  default  is  lwhite,
              otherwise the default is black.

       hands (class Foreground)
              Specifies  the color of the insides of the clock's hands. The default is depends on
              whether reverseVideo is specified.  If reverseVideo is  specified  the  default  is
              lwhite, otherwise the default is black.

       highlight (class Foreground)
              Specifies the color used to highlight the clock's hands. The default is
               depends  on  whether  reverseVideo is specified.  If reverseVideo is specified the
              default is lwhite, otherwise the default is black.

       analog (class Boolean)
              Specifies whether or not an analog clock should be used instead of a  digital  one.
              The default is True.

       roman (class Boolean)
              Specifies  whether  roman  or arabic digits shoud be used on the analog clock.  The
              default is True.

       north (class Boolean)
              Specifies whether or not reverse direction of rotation of hands of the analog clock
              should be used.  The default is False.

       chime (class Boolean)
              Specifies whether or not a bell should be rung on the hour and half hour.

       padding (class Margin)
              Specifies the amount of internal padding in pixels to be used.  The default is 8.

       font (class Font)
              Specifies  the  font  to  be  used for the digital clock.  Note that variable width
              fonts currently will not always display correctly.

WIDGETS

       In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy  of  the  widgets  which
       compose xclock.  In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure.  The
       widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.

       XClock  xclock
               Clock  clock

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY
              to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
              to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global  resources  stored  in
              the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

FILES

       /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XClock
              Specifies required resources
