How to use the clock at WAS

These are the basics, there are more options below.
The format for the html to add a clock to your page is:
< img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=format">

The bold type characters should be entered exactly as shown
Characters in italics represent a value you must choose.

There are three choices for format, they are:

See the examples below for what each format looks like.

Optional Parameters
Optional parameters are added to the query string by preceeding the keyword with an ampersand (&)

Argument Possible Values Meaning
simple yes or no Use a simple style if yes. See example below. The default is no.
bgcolour RRGGBB or trans When using the simple style, specifies the background color of the image, or if trans is used, specifies a transparent background. RRGGBB should be 3 2-digit hex values in one string, similar to the HTML command
. This argument has no meaning when simple is not yes. The default is 000000 (black).
fgcolour RRGGBB When using the simple=yes, specifies the foreground color of the image. Same format as bgcolour. The default is FFFFFF (white).

<img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=normal">

<img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=secs">

<img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=24hr">

<img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=24hr&simple=yes">

<img src="/cgi-bin/clock?format=normal&simple=yes&bgcolour=FF00FF&fgcolour=00FF00">

The simple style requires less disk I/O, and should execute much more quickly.
