The Daytime Protocol is covered in RFC 867 ~ May, 1983 — from the abstract:

A useful debugging and measurement tool is a daytime service. A daytime service simply sends a the current date and time as a character string without regard to the input.

Ok, the obvious question: When I install Linux, should I enable this service? I think the answer is no, and that's what I've been doing so far. I think ping and similar tools (or telneting or sshing to the machine) tell me as much or more, until or unless I find some explicit need for this service.

Maybe the Chargen service and some similar services that I don't know anything about are also covered in RFCs.
