According to the 1998 README, there should be a dedicated directory containing the ntptrace source. From which I conclude that ntptrace was intended to be written in C. Now days, ntptrace is a perl script. It is in the scripts directory, and there is no dedicated ntptrace directory.
Are there subtle reasons for having ntptrace in perl, rather then C? That is, other then, perhaps, someone to write it in C? Will ntp.org consider accepting a rewrite of ntptrace in C (for unix)?
