How many Intel x86 CISC instructions needed to decode NTP time field 
(ignoring complexities of decoding full packet, re: NTP broadcasting)?

>From my understanding most NTP code is nearly exclusively compiled C++, 
efficient -- but not quite assembler.

For RISC microcontroller applications and other CPU designs (like DSPs) --  
NTP decoding may have to be done via assembler.
