Are you referring to the external clock/timer chip that was adapted for
use with the C64/128?  It allowed automatic setting of time in GEOS,
CS/DOS and some other applications.

If so, I recall that there was a discussion about a RTC (not CMD's) on
CompuServe many years ago.

The CompuServe Library has the following current entry:

[72777,1202]                            Lib: 2 Help & Utilities  Cat#:

  Title   : CS-ASST2.SFX   programs to use with CS-DOS

Some more programs to use with CS-DOS - a menu for ramdisk commands, an
instrument tuner, 80-col. font loader with 2 fonts, and date & time
utilities for use with the Smartwatch chip (Dallas #1216).
