XTide is a package that provides tide and current predictions in a wide
variety of formats. Graphs, text listings, and calendars can be generated,
or a tide clock can be provided on your desktop.
XTide can work with the X window system, plain text terminals, or the
web. This is accomplished with three separate programs: the interactive
interface (xtide), the non-interactive or command line interface (tide),
and the web interface (xttpd).
The algorithm that XTide uses to predict tides is used by the National
Ocean Service in the U.S. It is significantly more accurate than the
simple tide clocks that can be bought in novelty stores. However, it takes
more to predict tides accurately than just a spiffy algorithm -- data are
required for every tidal prediction location.  This package provides a
sample data set for only one location so you can try out the package, but
anything useful requires the data packaged in the xtide-data package (or
downloaded from the XTide ftp site).
