ISO: Documentation for new features of [clock]

Hello out there,
I face some problems with the new [clock] command. Having the doc
available might help, but I haven't been able to locate them at SF.
The only thing I found was the help bundled with tcl8.5a1, but it
looks to me like it doesn't describe yet the new features.
Thanks for any links.

Never mind, when downloading the sources from SF there is a directory
aptly named 'doc', which contains the current state of the
documentation for [clock] - but it's tough reading as a clock.n file
(what's the name of this format? nroff?)

So the question becomes: What simple one-liner is needed to convert
x.n into (e.g.) x.html on Windows?
I'll start a new thread.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,




nroff is the tool used to create the man pages. I'm not
sure what the format is called.


If cygwin is available, "nroff -man clock.n" will generate
a viewable version, although it won't be html.

But.

I prefer using the html set. There's a separate file on
sf called "tcl<version>-html.tar.gz" that I use.

I find that 'groff -Thtml -man clock.n' works well enough for quick
hack, and you might also have PS, DVI or PDF output engines installed
(and their output *is* nice, much nicer than you'd get out of just
printing a webpage).

According to WL < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >:
:If cygwin is available, "nroff -man clock.n" will generate
:a viewable version, although it won't be html.

Actually, if cygwin is providing groff as the nroff (which
I would suspect is the case) then try:

nroff -Thtml -man clock.n

The -T is to select the device. -Thtml says create html
as output , -Tps says to produce postscript as output, etc.

Thanks, but I'm on Windows and cygwin is not an option: I tried it
once but apparently they come with their own keyboard driver. No big
deal? Hm, not when you're in front of a German keyboard and all of a
sudden keys like {}[] ... are gone. Using Tcl under these conditions
is a bit of a challenge, so it got removed immediately.

I know, I use it all the time. But I needed the info on the [clock]
command _in development_ and ready made HTML files are only available
for released versions.
But I got the necessary infos in the following thread.
Best regards
Helmut Giese

The documentation at <URL: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;
is built from the CVS HEAD on a semi-regular basis.
