The DaytimeTCPClient class is a TCP implementation of a client for the Daytime protocol described in RFC 867. To use the class, merely establish a connection with connect and call getTime() to retrieve the daytime string, then call disconnect to close the connection properly.

See also:
public final class DaytimeTCPClient extends SocketClient
The default daytime port. It is set to 13 according to RFC 867.
    public static final int DEFAULT_PORT = 13;
    // Received dates will likely be less than 64 characters.
    // This is a temporary buffer used while receiving data.
    private final char[] __buffer = new char[64];

The default DaytimeTCPClient constructor. It merely sets the default port to DEFAULT_PORT .
    public DaytimeTCPClient ()

Retrieves the time string from the server and returns it. The server will have closed the connection at this point, so you should call disconnect after calling this method. To retrieve another time, you must initiate another connection with connect before calling getTime() again.

The time string retrieved from the server.
IOException If an error occurs while fetching the time string.
    public String getTime() throws IOException
        int read;
        StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder(.);
        BufferedReader reader;
        reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(_input_, getCharsetName())); // Java 1.6 can use getCharset()
        while (true)
            read =, 0, .);
            if (read <= 0) {
            result.append(, 0, read);
        return result.toString();
