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.
