Re: unix scripting for clock

Perhaps I don't understand what you mean, but here're my 2 cents.
In perl:
#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
my $current_time=localtime time;
print "$current_time\n";



in shell - it's the `date` command.

Attached is a shell script which is very elegant. You can source this file from .bashrc, the clock wil appear on the right top-corner of your VDU.
