 15The
 16[= prog-name =]
 17utility program is used to query an NTP daemon about its
 18current state and to request changes in that state.
 19It uses NTP mode 7 control message formats described in the source code.
 20The program may
 21be run either in interactive mode or controlled using command line
 22arguments.
 23Extensive state and statistics information is available
 24through the
 25[= prog-name =]
 26interface.
 27In addition, nearly all the
 28configuration options which can be specified at startup using
 29ntpd's configuration file may also be specified at run time using
 30[= prog-name =] .
