asclock - the AfterStep clock
asclock [ -help] [-12 | -24] [-shape]
The asclock is a clock written to emulate the date/time application on the NEXTSTEP(tm) operating system. asclock supports multiple languages, military and AM/PM time formats, program execution, and the shape extension to X-Windows.
usage: asclock [-options ...]
where options include:
-12 12 hour format
-24 24 hour format
-exe <program> program to start on click
-led <color> color of the led
-position [+|-]x[+|-]y position of asclock
-shape without groundplate
-theme <dir> theme directory
-noblink don't blink

asclock can be called from one of many ways. The most common invocation is the command line:
[user@host] ~% asclock -12 -exe 'xlock -mode hop' &
Another way to call asclock is from the window manager:
*Wharf - - MaxSwallow "asclock" asclock -theme shape -12&
This line, when placed in the .steprc file in the users home directory will cause asclock to use the shape extensions so that it will be a button on the Wharf (1) button bar under the afterstep (1) window manager.
A theme consists of a directory containing 8 xpms and a position file called 'config'. All tiles within the same xpm must have the same width or height, except the colon which has half the width of the other digits. The pixmaps are called: clock.xpm, date.xpm, led.xpm, month.xpm, weekday.xpm, hour.xpm, minute.xpm, second.xpm. For a full description of the format, take a look at README.THEMES.
