NAME
       dxclock - DECwindows interface to the clock

SYNOPSIS
       dxclock [ flags ]

FLAGS
       Specifies  the color of the window's border (color displays only).  The
       default is specified by means of the Session Manager's Customize Window
       dialog box.  Specifies the color of the window's background (color dis‐
       plays only).  The default is specified by means	of  the	 Session  Man‐
       ager's  Customize  Window  dialog box.  Specifies the display screen on
       which dxclock displays its window.  If the display option is not speci‐
       fied,  dxclock  uses the display screen specified by your DISPLAY envi‐
       ronment variable.  The display option has the  format  hostname:number.
       Using two colons (::) instead of one (:) indicates that DECnet is to be
       used for transport.  The default is  :0.	  For  more  information,  see
       X(1X).	This option is the same as the -d option.  Specifies the color
       of the text (color displays only).  The default is specified  by	 means
       of  the	Session	 Manager's Customize Window dialog box.	 Specifies the
       font for all of the clock menus.	 (The analog  and  digital  fonts  are
       automatically  scaled  to  match	 the  clock size.) The default font is
       menu12. This option is overriden by the .Xdefaults file.	 Specifies the
       width,  length,	and  location  of the dxclock window.  If the geometry
       option is not specified, dxclock uses  default  values.	 The  geometry
       option has the format [widthxlength][{+-}x{+-}y].  For more information
       about the screen coordinate system, see X(1X).  The dxclock window  has
       one  pop-up  menu.   To	display this pop-up menu, position the pointer
       anywhere within the dxclock window and click MB3 (the right mouse  but‐
       ton  unless  you	 have  redefined it). This menu contains the following
       menu items: Displays the Settings dialog box that lets you specify  the
       clock  regions  to display, turn on or turn off the use of analog time,
       digital time, date, menu bar and 24-hour digital time.  Sets the alarm,
       and enter a message that appears when the alarm goes off.  You can also
       display this dialog box by placing the pointer at any  position	within
       the dxclock window and double-clicking MB1.  Saves the clock's settings
       and its size and position, to use the next  time	 you  run  the	clock.
       Restores	 the  use  of  system default values for the clock's settings,
       size, and position.  Displays information about using the dxclock  com‐
       mand.  Closes the dxclock window.

DESCRIPTION
       The  dxclock  command  displays a window that continuously displays the
       system date and time. The clock can display  time  values  in  military
       style (0 through 23 hours) or in 12-hour AM and PM format.  The dxclock
       window has an alarm and the following components: Analog region Digital
       region Date region

   X Defaults
       The dxclock application uses the values in the .Xdefaults file when you
       logged in and uses the appropriate resource specification to  customize
       the  appearance	dxclock window.	 A resource specification in the .Xde‐
       faults file has the following format:

       [name*]resource:	   value Specifies the application name	 or  the  name
       string that restricts the resource assignment to that application or to
       a component of an application.  If this argument is not specified,  the
       resource assignment is globally available to all X applications.	 Spec‐
       ifies the resource.  Specifies the value that is to be assigned to  the
       resource.

       Because	each toolkit-based application can consist of a combination of
       widgets (for example, push buttons and a scroll bar), you can form  the
       name  string by adding widget class and name identifiers to the string.
       For further information about adding class and  name  identifiers,  see
       X(1X).

       For dxclock the available class identifiers is Clock.

       For dxclock, the available name identifiers are Digital and FontFamily.

       In  addition  to	 the  general resources listed in X(1X), the resources
       available for dxclock are: Specifies that the alarm be turned  on.   If
       set  to	zero,  the  alarm is not turned on.  If set to 1, the alarm is
       turned on.  The default is zero.	 Specifies the hour the alarm is to go
       off  (0	to  23).  The default is 12.  Specifies the message to be dis‐
       played when the alarm goes off.	The default is the string  Alarm  Mes‐
       sage.   Specifies  the  minute  the alarm is to go off (00 to 59).  The
       default is 00.  Specifies that the alarm is set	for  PM.   If  set  to
       zero,  the  alarm is set for AM.	 If set to 1, the alarm is set for PM.
       The default is zero.  Specifies	whether	 the  analog  portion  of  the
       dxclock window is displayed.  If set to zero, the analog portion is not
       displayed.  If set to 1, the analog portion is displayed.  The  default
       is 1.  Specifies whether the date portion of the dxclock window is dis‐
       played.	If set to zero, the date portion is not displayed.  If set  to
       1,  the date portion is displayed. The default is 1.  Specifies whether
       the digital portion of the dxclock window  is  displayed.   If  set  to
       zero,  the  digital portion is not displayed.  If set to 1, the digital
       portion is displayed.  The default is 1.	 Specifies whether the digital
       portion	of  the	 dxclock window displays the date in 12-hour format or
       24-hour format.	If set to zero, 12-hour format is used. If set	to  1,
       24-hour format is used.	The default is zero.

       The  fonts  used	 by dxclock are specified by an asterisk (*).  This is
       done so that a font family is chosen instead of a particular font.  The
       asterisk (*) is a wildcard character that matches all font sizes.

RESTRICTIONS
       The  system  time  cannot  be  changed  while the clock is running. The
       dxclock window must be closed  and  reopened  if	 the  system  time  is
       changed.
