.SH NAME
\f\*[B-Font]update-leap\fP
\- leap-seconds file manager/updater
.SH SYNOPSIS
\f\*[B-Font]update-leap\fP
.\" Mixture of short (flag) options and long options
[\f\*[B-Font]\-flags\f[]]

.SH DESCRIPTION
\f\*[B-Font]update-leap\fP
will validate the file currently on the local system
and if necessary, updates leap-second definition file.
.sp \n(Ppu
.ne 2

Ordinarily, the file is found using the "leapfile" directive in
\fCntp.conf\f[]\fR(5)\f[].
However, an alternate location can be specified on the command line.
.sp \n(Ppu
.ne 2

If the file does not exist, is not valid, has expired, or is expiring soon,
a new copy will be downloaded.  If the new copy validates, it is installed and
NTP is (optionally) restarted.
.sp \n(Ppu
.ne 2

If the current file is acceptable, no download or restart occurs.
.sp \n(Ppu
.ne 2

-c can also be used to invoke another script to perform administrative
functions, e.g. to copy the file to other local systems.
.PP
This can be run as a cron job.  As the file is rarely updated, and leap
seconds are announced at least one month in advance (usually longer), it
need not be run more frequently than about once every three weeks.
.PP
For cron-friendly behavior, define CRONJOB=1 in the crontab.
