Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to register. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the software to an updated program with a printed manual.
Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (in both cases , there are good and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sunfry or to a specific group.
Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.

TM.NLM and TS.NLM, both names stand for the following:
TM ----> Time Master ( a Novell file server with TM.NLM loaded ) TS ----> Time Slave ( any other Novell file server with TS.NLM loaded )
In the internetwork it is sometimes crucial to applications that the file server they are running on have the same time/date stamp. These NLM's do exactly that, They synchronise there time to the time of the T(ime) M(aster).
The master will set the time and all other file servers in the internet will synchronise to it. This implies that there is 1 TM(aster) and the rest are TS(laves).
How to use and Invoke the programs.
load TM Default mode load TM verbose NLM prints a message if the time has been sent to a slave (TS)
load TS Default mode load TS verbose Print message if time has been synchronized load TS dummy
