java and downloading time
Posted on 1998-08-27
This is somewhat a general programming question but how can I go to a web site such as the Navy's atomic clock time page, or any other source, and get the official time of day without really viewing the page?
In other words, I want to write a program that can go to this website get the time and store it in a buffer. I don't know exactly how to retrieve the time. (I know where the pages are but the time is displayed via some cgi program on there server).
