I know that by Linux tmux I can show a digital clock in terminal. But how to show an analog clock in terminal? Is it possible?

Do you want to write such a program or are you just searching around for one? – Emil Vikström Jun 28 '12 at 14:58

Just searching one for use, digital clock is not intuitive – Tom Xue Jun 28 '12 at 15:01
There's a package called tty-clock - if it's not intuitive, than make so that it becomes intuitive. – hovanessyan Jun 28 '12 at 15:05

Look at aclock.

Aclock is an analog clock program for text mode console displays, terminals, or terminal emulators. This program is obviously absolutely useless, except for turning your old, expensive mainframe or supercomputer into a wall clock.

It has also the bonus of running pretty much anywhere: from DOS to Linux to old UNIX systems.
