Yes it's a clock

Release date: 
Friday, 23 May, 1997




Authors/Port authors:

Here is a clock program complete with source. The program is fairly uncomplicated, but a useful and useable applet showing some basic (and some not so basic) OS/2 PM programming tricks. The ordinary user will find this clock requires almost no resources, and keeps going as long as the pm shell is still working. The clock will store it's current window position when you manually close it.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Yes it's a clock v. 1.00 (7/2/2021, A. Doff) Readme/What's new
Required text file, and English (CLOCK.EXE) or Dutch (CLOCK_NL.EXE) binary file only. Any parameter will enable the stealth mode, which no longer includes CLOCK.EXE in the Task list of OS/2 or the eCenter. Alleen een vereist tekstbestand, en een Engelstalig (CLOCK.EXE) of Nederlandstalig (CLOCK_NL.EXE) binair bestand. Met een willekeurige parameter wordt de stealth modus ingeschakeld, waardoor CLOCK.EXE niet meer ingebrepen wordt in het Taakoverzicht van OS/2 of het eCenter.

To enable the stealth mode, like PMTPOSD2's, start the new CLOCK.EXE (English) or CLOCK_NL.EXE.EXE (Dutch) with any single parameter. The word "stealth", for example. Then the clock should no longer appear in the Task List nor the eCenter. AFAIK a claim, the clock will store its current window position when you manually close it, may not be true. Or may not be true anymore, at least if the open sourced release is anything to go by.
