NAME
     isdntel --	isdn4bsd telephone answering management	utility

SYNOPSIS
     isdntel [-a aliasfile] [-d	spooldir] [-p playcommand] [-t timeout]

DESCRIPTION
     The isdntel utility is used to provide an "answering machine" functional-
     ity for incoming telephone	voice messages.

     The following options are supported:

     -a	     Use aliasfile as the pathname for an aliasfile containing aliases
	     for phone numbers.	 The default path is /etc/isdn/isdntel.alias.
	     The format	of an alias entry is the number	string followed	by one
	     or	more spaces or tabs.  The rest of the line is taken as the
	     alias string.  Comments are introduced by a leading blank,	tab or
	     "#" character.

     -d	     Use spooldir as the directory where the incoming voice messages
	     are stored	by the "answ" script called by isdnd(8).  This de-
	     faults to the directory /var/isdn.	 The format of a voice message
	     filename is:

		   YYMMDDhhmmss-dest_number-source_number-length_in_secs

     -p	     Use playcommand as	the command string to execute for playing a
	     voice message to some audio output	facility.  The characters %s
	     are replaced by the currently selected filename.  The default
	     string is "cat %s | alaw2ulaw >/dev/audio".

     -t	     The value for timeout specifies the time in seconds the program
	     rereads the spool directory when there is no keyboard activity.

     The screen	output should be obvious.  If in doubt,	consult	the source.
