    SubjectRe: [LinuxPPS] [PATCH 4/5] pps: add parallel port PPS signal generator
    Hi Rodolfo,

    I've accidentally found your email in the archives of linuxpps list.
    Very strange that it didn't come to me directly because I was
    subscribed...

    This generator sends PPS signals over a parallel port from one computer
    to another. So it's just doing what every PPS-capable GPS device does.
    I use it to precisely synchronize time on several computers for
    distributed real-time simulation. It has very strict timing conditions.
