Sets local system time from NTP server.
Copy rentp anywhere you like, then run from CLI.
If there are no errors rentp will remain silent. 
Not supplying UTC offset (-o, see below) is considered 
an error, but time will be set nonetheless (using UTC = zero)!

Note that rentp currently doesnt have a network timeout,
so it will just hang and wait if server is unreachable or
does not reply. (use break, or hit Ctrl-C if that's the case.)

Usage:

	rentp [options] <ntpserver>
	or
	rentp -h
	or
	rentp -p

Examples: 

	rentp -o120 0.fedora.pool.ntp.org

...will sync time from Fedora's timeserver, using 120 mins.
UTC offset (=Germany summer daylight saving time). UTC
offset should be supplied, otherwise rentp will give a message,
and time will probably be wrong (unless you live in UTC zone 0). 

	rentp -h

...will display help text.

	rentp -p

...will just print the system date/time (no NTP operation).
