Description:
A simple program that displays a clock on the screen, and provides
the ability to set the DOS clock.

Three versions are supplied, a CGA, a EGA and a VGA version.
CGACLK.EXEfor cga displays.
EGACLK.EXEfor ega displays.
VGACLK.EXEfor vga displays.

The program is very easy to use, run the version that corresponds
to your type of display. A clock face will appear on your screen and
it will display the time currently set on the DOS clock. When first
started, the clock is in the run mode. A menu will be displayed in
the top left portion of the screen, with two options,

>Q< depressing the Q key will return you to DOS.

>S< depressing the S key will put the program in the set mode.

When S is pressed the displayed time will freeze and another
menu will be displayed in the upper left portion of the screen.

>H< pressing H will advance the hour hand.
>M< pressing M will advance the minute hand.
>S< pressing S will advance the second hand.
>< when the SHIFT key is pressed with H, M, or S the hour, minute
or second hands will move in the reverse direction.
>Q< Once the time has correctly been set, press Q, the DOS clock
will be set to the displayed time and the clock will start
ticking again.

This is a 12 hour clock and AM or PM is displayed on the clock face,
this avoids the hassel of using the military format.
