Your memory is correct, though it requires a later PRS10
firmware that permits setting the 'TO' parameter.
I wrote a C program for Darwin/Cygwin that reads the sawtooth
correction from an iLotus M12 and sets the 'TO' on the PRS10.
Ultimate goal was to target a microcontroller to drive the
software correction. But, with the PRS10's prefilter, I'm
not sure (and didn't measure) how important the sawtooth correction
was for the PRS10's PPS output.
