# Display a clock face

Display the 12 numbers on a clock face exactly like this:

           12
11           1

10                   2

9                       3

8                   4

7           5
6


To better see the grid, here's one with dots:

...........12............
.....11...........1......
.........................
.10...................2..
.........................
.........................
9.......................3
.........................
.........................
..8...................4..
.........................
......7...........5......
............6............


Note that the grid is stretched in width by a factor of two to make it look more square.

Also note that two-digit numbers are aligned with their ones digit in place. The 9 digit should be flush against the left.

Return or print the result as a multiline string (not a list of lines). Any trailing spaces are optional. The final newline also optional.

I wanted to do something... different. So this one calculates the positions of all the digits, via pairs of characters, strips off the initial space and prints the lines.

Easily modifiable for different parameters, e.g. a 45 character wide version with 17 digits.

Another approach, but longer:

map$s.=$_%26?{12,12,32,11,44,1,80,10,100,2,157,9,181,3,237,8,257,4,293,7,

Spaces hardcoded in -- I'm sure its possible to golf the \ns down, by repeating but I don't know how...
