       isdnconf can manipulate or read  the  file  /etc/isdn/cal­
       lerid.conf  as  well  as ~/.isdn.  Entries can be added or
       removed from these files.  Additionally,  entries  can  be
       searched  for  and displayed in a way similar to grep.  An
       entry can be an own MSN ([MSN]) or a phone  number  ([NUM­

       You  can  use  this  program  to build your own phonebook.
       These files are used by many of the other  ISDN  utilities
       that  use  phone  numbers,  to display a number symbolicly
       instead of as a plain number.


       Note: usage of the options -A and  -D  is  dangerous!  The
       complete  structure  of  the  file may be changed, and all
       comments are removed! Make  backups  of  your  data  files
       before trying these.


       -A  Add  a  new  entry, which is read from standard input.
           The following values are asked for  (here  with  exam­

           Alias:          Fred
           Number:         0815/441777
           SI:             0
           Zone:           4
           Interface:      -
           Flags:          I|O
           Program:        /usr/local/bin/ring
           User:           uucp
           Group:          user
           Time:           8-20
           Flags:          (control-D here indicates end of flags)

           Alias:          (control-D here indicated end of entries)

           If  you  want  another [Flags] entry, simply enter the
           data for another program for this number at the  point
           where the control-D was given above.

           cussed below (see DATA OPTIONS).

       -V  version:  display the program's version and terminate.

       If both -A and -D are given together, isdnconf will termi­
       nate, as this is not a valid combination.

       If  neither -A nor -D is given, then isdnconf will display
       entries which match the data given.

       DATA OPTIONS: (none applicable for -A)

       -n 'number'
           number: match the given number. It can  contain  wild­

       -a 'alias'
           alias:  match  the given alias name. The name can con­
           tain wildcards.  Note: due to a bug, use  '?'  instead
           of '-'.

       -t 'SI'
           SI: match the given service indicator.

       -c 'code'
           code:  match  the  area code of the phone number. Only
           usable for displaying (not for -A nor -D).

       -i  ignore case for the -n and -a options.

       -w  word: the parameters for -n  and  -a  must  match  the
           whole value, not just a substring.
           Examples (here for -n):

           "*34*" matches 123456, 345677, 1234
           "34*"  matches 34567, 34111 but not 1234
           "34??" matches 3411, 3456
           "34"   matches only 34

           Without the -w option, these would match:

           "*34*" matches 123456, 345677, 1234
           "34*"  matches 123456, 345677, 1234, 34567, 34111
           "34??" matches 123456, 345677, 1234, 3411, 3456

       -q  quiet: when using the -A or -D commands, the output is
           suppressed.   When  not  using  the -A or -D commands,
           only the alias of the matching  number  is  shown,  or
           just the number in case the alias is not found.

       -m  MSN:  when  used  in  combination with the -A command,
           instructs isdnconf to create  a  new  MSN  entry;  the
           default is to create a new NUMBER entry. Only the val­
           ues alias, number, SI, zone and interface are applica­
           ble to an MSN entry.

       The  following  two  options do not apply to the -A and -D
       commands. They only change the output format.

       -s  short: only display the alias and the number.

       -l  long: also display the programs to run ([START]).

       -f 'filename'
           file:  usually  isdnconf   uses   the   /etc/isdn/cal­
           lerid.conf  and  the ~/.isdn files. If isdnconf should
           be applied to another file, use this option.

       -g  global: only  applies  to  the  -A  and  -D  commands.
           Instead of editing ~/.isdn, /etc/isdn/callerid.conf is

       -1  first: only delete or display the first entry.

       -M  isdnmon: used internally by isdnmon to get alias info.
