 * The DaytimeUDPClient class is a UDP implementation of a client for the
 * Daytime protocol described in RFC 867.  To use the class, merely
 * open a local datagram socket with
 * {@link  open }
 * and call {@link #getTime  getTime } to retrieve the daytime
 * string, then
 * call {@link  close }
 * to close the connection properly.  Unlike
 * {@link},
 * successive calls to {@link #getTime  getTime } are permitted
 * without re-establishing a connection.  That is because UDP is a
 * connectionless protocol and the Daytime protocol is stateless.
 * @see DaytimeTCPClient
