DESCRIPTION

This package implements a client for the RFC 868 TIME protocol (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc868.txt) and also a minimal client for the RFC 2030 Simple Network Time Protocol (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2030.txt). RFC 868 returns the time in seconds since 1 January 1900 to either tcp or udp clients. RFC 2030 also gives this time but also provides a fractional part which is not used in this client.
