What does this mean?

I can not find reference to rtcheck in either the Ubuntu Software Centre or on the internet. What is it that you are trying to do? – SimplySimon Sep 4 '13 at 9:43
as I understood, rtcheck is use to run other programm in the realtime way. A friend of mine told me to use it to run a programm he gave me. but he didn't told me how, and now i can't reach him. – andrea Sep 4 '13 at 9:48
OK I have found the package… I'll try and install it and get back to you. – SimplySimon Sep 4 '13 at 9:59
