NAME

Net::Time - time and daytime network client interface

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Net::Time qw(inet_time inet_daytime);

    print inet_time();          # use default host from Net::Config
    print inet_time(localhost);
    print inet_time(localhost, tcp);

    print inet_daytime();       # use default host from Net::Config
    print inet_daytime(localhost);
    print inet_daytime(localhost, tcp);



DESCRIPTION

Net::Time provides subroutines that obtain the time on a remote machine.
inet_time ( [HOST [, PROTOCOL [, TIMEOUT]]]) Obtain the time on HOST, or some default host if HOST is not given or not defined, using the protocol as defined in RFC868. The optional argument PROTOCOL should define the protocol to use, either tcp or udp. The result will be a time value in the same units as returned by time() or undef upon failure.
inet_daytime ( [HOST [, PROTOCOL [, TIMEOUT]]]) Obtain the time on HOST, or some default host if HOST is not given or not defined, using the protocol as defined in RFC867. The optional argument PROTOCOL should define the protocol to use, either tcp or udp. The result will be an ASCII string or undef upon failure.
