		<p>Address: 127.127.33.<i>u</i><br>
			Reference ID: <tt>DUMBCLOCK</tt><br>
			Driver ID: <tt>DUMBCLOCK</tt><br>
			Serial Port: <tt>/dev/dumbclock<i>u</i></tt>; 9600 bps, 8-bits, no parity<br>
			Features: <tt>(none)</tt></p>
		<p>This driver supports a dumb ASCII clock that only emits localtime at a reliable interval. This has no provisions for leap seconds, quality codes, etc. It assumes output in the local time zone, and that the C library mktime()/localtime() routines will correctly convert back and forth between local and UTC.</p>
		<p>Most of this code is originally from refclock_wwvb.c with thanks. It has been so mangled that wwvb is not a recognizable ancestor.</p>
Timecode format: hh:mm:ssCL
hh:mm:ss - local time
C - \r (carriage return)
L - \n (newline)
