# Instructions below


# TxtClock is a Perl CGI script which is meant to be run from Server Side
# Includes. For more information on Server Side Includes, check out the
# FAQ at the URL mentioned above. When this script is implemented, it can
# be used to show browsers several variations of the current time and/or
# date.


# Should you encounter any problems running this script, such as Method Not
# Implemented, try changing the name of the program to nph-txtclock.cgi,
# as some servers require the use of .cgi extensions. Otherwise, this
# script must be placed in your cgi-bin. There are several variables which
# must be edited in the txtclock.pl script.

# TXTCLOCK.PL -

# There are up to nine variables in the txtclock.pl script, however
# if you wish to receive the default display, you need not edit any
# of them. You can mix and match all of these options and see which
# kind of clock you like the best. You can get the clock to display
# only the day of the week, only the date, only the time, everything
# or make up your own combination!

# $Display_Week_Day = '1';
# If this option is set to '1', the day of the week will be
# displayed; Possible Values: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
# Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Setting this option
# to '0' will suppress the printing of the Day of the Week.

# $Display_Month = '1';
# If this option is set to '1', the month will be printed.
# Possible values include: January, February, March, April, May,
# June, July, August, September, October, November and December.
# If this option is set to '0', the month will not be displayed.

# $Display_Month_Day = '1';
# If this option is set to '1', the day of the month is
# displayed, containing a value from 01 - 31. Setting this to
# '0' will hide the Day of the Month.

# $Display_Year = '1';
# If this option is set to '1', the four digit year is
# displayed, and it can be hidden by setting this to '0'.

# $Display_Time = '1';
# If this option is set to '1', a twenty four hour clock is
# displayed. Otherwise, if it is set to '0', it is supressed.

# $Display_Time_Zone = '1';
# Setting this to '1' allows users to your site to know what
# time zone the date is being displayed from. If it is set
# to '1', the script will determine if it is Daylight Savings
# or not. If so, it uses $Daylight_Time_Zone as the Time Zone
# to display. Otherwise it uses $Standard_Time_Zone.

# $Standard_Time_Zone = 'EST';
# $Daylight_Time_Zone = 'EDT';
# These are the names of your Time Zones. The ones shown above
# represent Eastern Coast Time Zones. Other ones in the US
# include Central Time (CST/CDT), Mountain Time (MST/MDT) and
# Pacific Coast Time (PST/PDT).

# How to Call This Script From Your Web Page
# ------------------------------------------

# Calling this script from a web page is fairly simple. You just use a standard
# Server Side Include call, such as:

# <!--#exec cgi="/url/path/to/txtclock.cgi"-->




SSI Perl Text Clock

This routine will provide a text display of a server based time clock; the time is derived from the server's time. The code is shown but this is NOT live. Be certain to use a proper PERL or CGI name extension on this program. You may directly highlight, copy and paste the above full program.
