NAME


wmclock - A dockable clock for the Window Maker window manager

SYNOPSIS


wmclock [{-12|-24|-year}] [-noblink] [-version] [-exe program] [-led color] [-monthxpm
filename] [-weekdayxpm filename]

DESCRIPTION


Wmclock is an applet which displays the date and time in a dockable tile in the same style
as the clock from the NEXTSTEP(tm) operating system. Wmclock is specially designed for
the Window Maker window manager, by Alfredo Kojima, and features multiple language
support, twenty-four-hour and twelve-hour (am/pm) time display, and, optionally, can run a
user-specified program on a mouse click. Wmclock is derived from asclock, a similar clock
for the AfterStep window manager.

OPTIONS


-12 or -24
Display the time in either twelve-hour format (with am/pm) or twenty-four-hour
format. Defaults to twenty-four-hour display.

-year Display the current year in the LED display instead of the time.

-noblink
The separator between the hours and minutes in the time display blinks by default.
This option turns off the blinking and displays a steadily lit separator instead.

-interval n
Set the blink cycle to n seconds. The default is 2 (1 second on, 1 second off).

-version
Displays the version of Wmclock.

-exe command
Run command in the background when a mouse button is pressed over wmclock. See
below for details.

-led color
Use color as the foreground color of the LED display. Color may be either a named
color from the rgb.txt database (for example, `red' or `chartreuse') or a numeric
color specification in any of the usual X11 formats (for example, `#ff0000' or
`rgb:7f/ff/00'). See the X(1) man page for more information.

-monthxpm filename
Get month abbreviations from filename, which is expected to be in the XPM format.
See below for details.

-weekdayxpm filename
Get weekday abbreviations from filename, which is expected to be in the XPM format.
See below for details.

INVOCATION AND EXAMPLES


The simplest way to start wmclock is:

wmclock

Wmclock displays in its own appicon, which you can place in Window Maker's dock by holding
down the [Alt] or [Meta] key and dragging wmclock to the dock with the primary mouse
button (usually the left one).

For a more complicated example:

wmclock -12 -led gold -exe /usr/GNUstep/Apps/WPrefs.app/WPrefs

This displays 12-hour time in an amber-colored LED display, and starts Window Maker's
preferences utility when you click on wmclock.

DETAILS


Running Commands
When you use wmclock with the -exe option, wmclock will run the command you specify
whenever you press a mouse button while the mouse cursor is over wmclock. Wmclock uses
the system(3) function from the C library (and ultimately /bin/sh) to run the command;
hence, the command must be in Bourne-shell syntax.

Using Alternate Month and Weekday Abbreviations
You can use the -monthxpm and -weekdayxpm options to convince wmclock to display month and
day-of-week abbreviations in a language besides the one it was compiled with, or to
display them in a language that wmclock does not yet support. The files you specify must
be in the XPM format, and they must follow the same strict size and placement as the month
and weekday XPMs that come in the wmclock source package. Each weekday abbreviation must
be 21 pixels wide and 6 pixels high; each month abbreviation must be 22 pixels wide and 6
pixels high. The month abbreviations must be arranged vertically, beginning with January
at the top and continuing down to December at the bottom. The weekday abbreviations must
also be arranged vertically, beginning with Monday at the top and continuing to Sunday at
the bottom.

You can find XPM files for a variety of languages in:

/usr/share/wmclock

For example, to have a French display, you could use the following command line:

wmclock -monthxpm /usr/share/wmclock/lang.french/month.xpm -weekdayxpm
/usr/share/wmclock/lang.french/weekday.xpm

Obsolete Options
In order to maintain command-line compatibility (mostly) with asclock, wmclock accepts a
few options on the command line without complaining, even though they don't have any
effect. The options which wmclock accepts in this manner are -shape and -iconic. Some
dockable versions of asclock required one or both of these options to become properly
dockable. However, Since wmclock is designed for Window Maker's dock, it already displays
in a shaped window in its own dockable appicon.
