-geometry <geometry>

I'm playing with xdaliclock and one of the option is the size and location. The option to do this in the man page is -geometry <geometry>. I don't have any idea what the syntax of that should be. I want it small and on the lower left of my screen.

Not real important just playing/procrastinating.

It was somewhere in manuals but cant recall now
The syntax is WxH[+-]top[+-]left
W- width
H - height
top - pixels from top (if negative - from the bottom border).
left - pixels from the left border (if negative - then from the right border).

xeyes -geometry 20x20+700+305
