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.
