Linux Software Map: getdate


  • Version: 1.1
  • Entered-date: 1998-01-22
  • Description: Query an RFC 868 time server and adjust/set local date/time. Useful for querying and copying the date/time from other Internet hosts. Will work correctly across time zones. Uses the UNIX adjtime() call so that it can be safely set up as a cron job. Can reject hosts that respond slowly, or that vary too greatly from the local time. V1.1 fixes minor bugs and errors in the man page. 13kB /pub/Linux/system/network/misc/getdate-1.1.tar.gz 954 /pub/Linux/system/network/misc/getdate-1.1.lsm
