Net::Time(3p)   Perl Programmers Reference Guide    Net::Time(3p)

NAME

     Net::Time - time and daytime network client interface

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.
