  6		  The ntp Distribution Base Directory
  7
  8This directory and its subdirectories contain the Network Time Protocol
  9Version 4 (NTP) distribution for Unix and Windows/NT systems.  This release
 10may still work on VxWorks, too.
 11
 12The contents of the base directory are given in this file. The contents of
 13subdirectories are given in the README files in each subdirectory.
 14
 15A complete explanation of the configure, compile and install process, as
 16well as setting up an NTP subnet, is in the HTML pages in the ./html/
 17directory. For more information on NTP and how to get a working setup,
 18read WHERE-TO-START.
 19
 20For Windows/NT, visit html/build/hints/winnt.html .
 21
 22The base directory ./ contains the autoconfiguration files, source
 23directories and related stuff:
 24
 25COPYRIGHT	Excerpt from the HTML file ./html/copyright.html. This file
 26		specifies copyright conditions, together with a list of

 38		version of NTP.
 39
 40README.hackers	Notes to folks who want to hack on the code.
 41
 42TODO            List of items the NTP developers are working on.
 43
 44WHERE-TO-START	Hints on what to read in order to get a working

 60
 61build		A script to build the distribution in A.`config.guess`
 62		subdirectory (more or less).
 63
 64clockstuff	Directory containing sources for miscellaneous programs
 65		to test certain auxiliary programs used with some kernel
 66		configurations, together with a program to calculate
 67		propagation delays for use with radio clocks and
 68		national time dissemination services such as WWV/WWVH,
 69		WWVB and CHU.
 70
 71conf            Directory containing a motley collection of
 72		configuration files for various systems. For example only.
 73
 74config.guess	Script used to identify the machine architecture and
 75		operating system.
 76

110
111ntpdate		Directory containing sources for a program to set the
