Jan Vibe's animated clock, as updated by Richard AshberyNot content with revisiting some of Jan Vibe’s old graphics programs and turning them into videos on YouTube, Richard Ashbery has gone to work updating another program by the prolific Danish developer, whose many and varied graphical ditties appeared regularly in the pages of Acorn User. This time, it’s Jan’s animated clock, updated for modern hardware and (widescreen) displays.

The program runs full screen, and presents the user with a clock face showing the time – updated each second, keeping it in line with the current time according to the computer’s clock. The whole program is written in BBC BASIC, and takes up just fifty lines, including a couple of REM statements and some blank lines.
