This driver enables you to receive the English MSF atomic clock time signal (in Europe, that is). The MSF signal is similar in function like the DCF radio signal but uses a different format. After a couple of days of reverse engineering a first driver was written. Then the firm producing the device got interested and submitted some patches greatly improving and fixing some bugs. One can find the driver here. This driver might be a step towards implementing the MSF receiver driver as an ntpd refclock."

An engineer is someone who does list processing in FORTRAN.
