It sounds like you should start with a user/client/desktop oriented time program. There's no reason for most users to be running ntpd in 2018. If you're running a server syncing to a PPS source or somesuch then you need ntpd. But at that point you're going to have to learn a lot of domain-specific jargon to do that thing, at which point the ntpd documentation is fine. If you want something that's fire and forget, then install openntpd or systemd-timesyncd and call it a day. Mike Stone
