grdc – grand digital clock (curses)



grdc [-st] [n]


grdc runs a digital clock made of reverse-video blanks on a curses compatible VDU screen. With an optional numeric argument n it stops after n seconds (default never). The optional -s flag makes digits scroll as they change. The optional -t flag tells grdc to output the time in a 12-hour format. In this curses mode implementation, the scrolling option has trouble keeping up.


Amos Shapir, modified for curses by John Lupien.

On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
