GUI application and command line tool to handle loading 
and saving of clocks on address A12.
Works with RF5C01A, MSM6242B and compatible clocks.

ClockPort
---------
This is a GUI application to show clocks on different ports. 
Clock time and date are shown directly from the data on the clock-port. 
Raw data is shown in the 0x0 to 0xF fields. 
Select the port from the list to attempt to load and identify the clock.

Options
- Reset: reset all registers on the clock and sets 24h time
- Stop: stop a clock (only useful to test your clock is responding)
- Start: start a clock (only useful to test your clock is responding)
- Load: write the clock data from the battery clock to the Amiga
- Save: write the Amiga system time to the battery clock

Reading and writing clocks take into consideration the locale timezone.

Emulated environments do not accurately replicate battery clocks and
therefore this application will not alter the clocks with stop, start
and reset commands.

LoadClockA12
------------
For use with hardware clock-ports on A1200 Gary 
supportting addresses from A12.
An example is Matthias Münch's A1200 Gayle adapter.

LoadClockA12 is a command line utility to set the Amiga system clock from 
the battery clock on address lines A12-A15. 

Simply add this to your S:startup-sequence to load the clock on start-up.
Returns warning (5) if no clock detected. May return error (10) if there
are issues setting the system time.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
---------------
These applications should be used on known clocks existing on the clock-port!
Any attempt to reset, stop, start, load or save on other clock-port hardware
could cause damage or unexpected behaviour to non-battery clock devices.
