XAPM(1)                     Linux Programmer's Manual                    XAPM(1)



NAME
       xapm - display Advanced Power Management (APM) BIOS information

SYNOPSIS
       xapm [ ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       xapm puts up an X window that displays the remaining battery life.  The
       left side of the window contains a printed time or percentage, and the
       right side of the window contains a bar indicating the percentage.
       Clicking on the left side of the window will toggle the display between
       time and percent.

OPTIONS AND RESOURCES
       In addition to standard Xt options, the following options are available:

       -V     Print version and exit.

       -highcolor color
              The color of the bar when the battery percentage is above
              highvalue.  Defaults to "green". (*highColor)

       -lowcolor color
              The color of the bar when the battery percentage is between
              lowvalue and highvalue.  Defaults to "yellow". (*lowColor)

       -criticalcolor color
              The color of the bar when the battery percentage is below
              lowvalue.  Defaults to "red".  This color is also used to flash
              the alphanumeric part of the display when the power status is
              critical. (*criticalCOlor)

       -highvalue highvalue
              Set highvalue.  The default is 50. (*highValue)

       -lowvalue lowvalue
              Set lowvalue.  The default is 10. (*lowValue)

       -chargingcolor color
              The color of the printed display when charging.  The default is
              "blue".  Use -foreground to change the color used when on battery
              power. (*chargingColor)

       -delay delay
              Sets the number of seconds delay between each update.  The default
              is 1. (*delay)

       -percent
              Display percentage on startup, instead of time remaining.
              (*percent, boolean)

BUGS
       There is no way to inhibit the alphanumeric display or the bar display.
       When the battery percentage is low, using a bright color to warn you of
       impending doom may be futile because the bar is too short.  Because of
       the form widget's desire to maintain proportions, dynamic resizing of the
       window may not do what you want it to do.
