NAME
       timedc - timed control program

SYNOPSIS
       timedc [ command [ argument ... ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Timedc is used to control the operation of the timed program.  It may be used to:

       o      measure the differences between machines' clocks,

       o      find the location where the master time server is running,

       o      enable or disable tracing of messages received by timed, and

       o      perform various debugging actions.

       Without	any arguments, timedc will prompt for commands from the standard input.  If argu-
       ments are supplied, timedc interprets the first argument as a command  and  the	remaining
       arguments  as  parameters  to  the  command.  The standard input may be redirected causing
       timedc to read commands from a file.  Commands may  be  abbreviated;  recognized  commands
       are:

       ? [ command ... ]

       help [ command ... ]
	      Print a short description of each command specified in the argument list, or, if no
	      arguments are given, a list of the recognized commands.

       clockdiff host ...
	      Compute the differences between the clock of the host machine and the clocks of the
	      machines given as arguments.

       trace { on | off }
	      Enable  or  disable  the	tracing  of  incoming  messages  to  timed  in	the  file
	      /usr/adm/timed.log.

       quit
	      Exit from timedc.

       Other commands may be included for use in testing and debugging timed;  the  help  command
       and the program source may be consulted for details.

FILES
       /usr/adm/timed.log	tracing file for timed
       /usr/adm/timed.masterlog log file for master timed
