xapm [ ... ]

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 percentage.

Defaults to "yellow". (*lowColor)

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)
Display percentage on startup, instead of time remaining. (*percent, boolean)
Swap automatically between displaying percentage and displaying the
time remaining. When on ac power, display percentage, when on battery
power, display the time remaining.
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.
