I tried not to stretch the PPS pulse and feed it into
RS232 port ( my pc like server ). I got the following
 refclock_atom: time_pps_kcbind failed: Operation not
and clkbug shows me that:
ntpdc> clkbug
clock address:
values: 8
           0           0           0           0
           0           0           0         131
times: 0

I checked the code refclock_atom.c, but I did not find
details about time_pps_kcbind function.

Does the error confirms that the pulse is too short
for my machine?
