This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
Simple Network Time Protocol is a simple subset of NTP. This package
includes Haskell libraries to use SNTP Protocol and small client and
server implementations. The package contains everything needed for a compilation.
Compiling and installation
Download and unpack.
Build and install through Cabal as for other Haskell packages:
runhaskell Setup configure --user --prefix=$HOME
runhaskell Setup build
runhaskell Setup install --user
(You may want to remove the --user flag when installing as root.)
The library depends on GHC, but porting should not be too hard as the
code is quite short.
Sntpdate fetches the date from an (s)ntp-server and tries
to set the local clock.
Sntpd serves the local clock to interested (s)ntp clients.
The program forks into the background. Needs a wrapper
for non-root operation as ntp runs in a privileged port.
