astime is an analogue clock for X windows. It shows the current time, the date and the day of the week. astime should run anywhere on Unix-like systems in principle but was so far tested on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris only. The command-line options allow to customize colors of every element of the display.
lwmenu is a TCL/Tk program that displays an application menu at the current X pointer position. It was written in order to scratch an itch--namely that lwm (Lightweight Window Manager) does not have a built-in application menu. It can be also used for other window managers that either don't have their own application menu (such as lwm) or don't currently have a menu-method written for the Debian menu system.
