sunclock

Sunclock is a sophisticated clock for the X Window system. It displays a map of the Earth and shows which portion is illuminated by the sun. In addition to providing local time for the default timezone, it also displays GMT time, legal and solar time of major cities, their latitude and longitude, sunrise and sunset, and the mutual distances of arbitrary locations on Earth. Sunclock can display meridians, parallels, tropics, and arctic circles. It has builtin functions that accelerate the speed of time and show the evolution of seasons.

            Brought back the memory
            This application have brought back my memories when I was using SunOS on Sun 3/60 and Sun IPX in early 90's. It was among the application that I regularly started in X session.

            Now, it evolved and have more features than the previous orignal version, and runs on GNU/Linux (Slackware distro).

            .tgz is, in this case, equivalent to .tar.gz. It is source, not a Slackware package.

            /i.
