AmiTimeKeeper is a small program which keeps the time right on your
machine. No installation is required. It is operated as a commodity
and is controlled by AmigaOS. An AmiTCP compatible TCP/IP stack is
required for AmiTimeKeeper to work.

Several settings determine the behaviour. The settings are passed
either directly from the command line or by using the tool types of
an icon. Preferences can also be saved between reboots. A utility
for small tasks like starting and stopping is also included.
Comprehensive control is possible using ARexx.

The default server address is pool.ntp.org. To find another server
try visiting support.ntp.org or one of the other sites listing time
servers. Use a fixed pool server by prefixing the domain, for example,
1.pool.ntp.org.

The local time zone needs to be configured using Workbench preferences
or a similar tool. In AmigaOS 3.1 and 3.9 this is available through
the Locale Preferences Editor. Daylight saving time is only supported
through the POSIX TZ environment variable.

The Icaros Desktop system is distributed with a custom build version of
AmiTimeKeeper. The author encourages everyone with an interest to build
their own version.

Version 1.11 has two known issues:
  - Settings window in AROS is broken (and disabled in this version)
  - Setting Popkey is not supported in ARexx

Changes in v1.11, 11.01.2021
  - New dedicated external control utility
  - New ARexx port with a diverse set of commands
  - Rewritten logger facility with more verbose output
  - Bug preventing commodity to shutdown fixed
  - Bug in CLI SWITCH parameters reporting wrong values fixed
  - Support AmigaOS 1.3 (v34) but without settings window
  - Time zone information displayed using GMT instead of UTC
  - Only watch current env variable for time zone changes
  - Improved validation of application settings
  - Several dead and duplicated code blocks removed
  - Various minor bug fixes and improvements
  - Documentation in HTML format
