Projects / astime


astime is an analogue clock for X windows. It shows the current time, the date and the day of the week. astime should run anywhere on Unix-like systems in principle but was so far tested on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris only. The command-line options allow to customize colors of every element of the display.
