Package linuxptp

PTP implementation for Linux


This software is an implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP)
according to IEEE standard 1588 for Linux. The dual design goals are to provide
a robust implementation of the standard and to use the most relevant and modern
Application Programming Interfaces (API) offered by the Linux kernel.
Supporting legacy APIs and other platforms is not a goal.
