Binary clock on linux terminal

Here is how we can create a binary clock on the Linux terminal. We will need to install the package binclock which can be done in the debian based systems

$ sudo apt-get install binclock

Now launch a terminal and run the command

$ binclock

To understand the output add the option “-n”

$ binclock -n

The binary time is in the format HH:MM:SS. The first column represents the first number of HH the second column the second number of HH and so on.

binclock by default provides the output in color which can be turned of by adding the option –color=off

$ binclock –color=off
