NAME
       ntptime - read and set kernel time variables


SYNOPSIS
       ntptime [ -MNchr ] [ -e est_error ] [ -f frequency ] [ -m max_error ] [
       -o offset ] [ -s status ] [ -t time_constant] [ -T tai_offset ]


DESCRIPTION
       This program is useful only with special kernels	 described  in	the  A
       Kernel  Model  for  Precision  Timekeeping  page. It reads and displays
       time-related kernel variables using the ntp_gettime()  system  call.  A
       similar	display	 can  be obtained using the ntpdc program and kerninfo
       command.


OPTIONS
       -c      Display the execution time of ntptime itself.

       -e est_error
	       Specify estimated error, in microseconds.

       -f frequency
	       Specify frequency offset, in parts per million.

       -h      Display help information.

       -m max_error
	       Specify max possible errors, in microseconds.

       -o offset
	       Specify clock offset, in microseconds.

       -r      Display Unix and NTP times in raw format.

       -s status
	       Specify clock status. Better know what you are doing.

       -t time_constant
	       Specify time constant, an integer in the range 0-10.

       -M      Switch to microsecond mode.

       -N      Switch to nanosecond mode.

       -T tai_offset
	       Set TAI offset.
