xdaliclock requires the following:
- A Tandy/TRS-80 Color Computer or emulator with at least 32K or more RAM

xdaliclock is supplied on a disk image that is compatible with most Color Computer emulators. To use this clock, you must transfer the disk image to a physical floppy disk or transfer it to a system such as DriveWire or the CoCo SDC. Please refer to the appropriate system manual for inserting the game disk or image into your system.
Turn on your computer or emulator and insert the disk or image into the system. Type the following at the OK prompt and press the [Enter] key.

Thanks to Steve Capps for developing the original Dali Clock and Jamie Zawinski for developing xdaliclock on which this is based. I thank Pierre Sarrazin for developing and maintaining the CMOC compiler that was used to develop xdaliclock.
