Atomic clock + alarm challenge


The file submission referenced in this post is no longer available on File Exchange.

Bob's pick this week has a twist.  


The challenge

Last week Brett's pick was a MATLAB alarm clock. But an alarm is only as good as the clock behind it. Your mission, should you accept, is to hook up the alarm to an atomic clock!

The pick

"How?" you might ask. That's where this week's pick comes in. Java Time by Scott Burnside is your other building block.

The catch

Scott's motivation was a Java example, so his MATLAB GUI does the deed using Java code and data types. I suggest excising the portion of his code that fetches the time. Build a wrapper function to return that time value as a datenum for example.

The incentive

Submit your atomic alarm clock to the file exchange and it might just become our next "Pick of the Week." Good luck!
