isdnrate - Print telephone rates and various info from rate-files(5). SYNOPSIS
isdnrate -bbest -dday -ffrom -hhour -llen -o -pprovs -r vNN -s -ttakt -vverbose -xexclude -C -Ddet -Gdata -H -L -N -Osocketfile -Ppiddir -Ssort -T -U -V -Xexplain -Z NUMBER ... All options are optional. DESCRIPTION
The isdnrate program prints various information from rate-files(5). Its main purpose is the calculation of telephone rates from your loca- tion to an arbitrary destination at a certain time and of a certain length for all the providers in a rate-file. NUMBER A telephone number may be 1234 a local area number 01234 a different area in your country +12345 a foreign country China text for a foreign country Paris a town US a code as defined in country.dat. Internet a Service name (if option -s is also given). Note that currently only city names in AT, DE and NL are supported plus some international capitals. Note also, spaces in country- or service names may be given as underscores. OPTIONS -bbest Print only best providers. Default is all. -crateconf Use rateconf as provider selection file and ignore setting in isdn.conf. -dday Calc rates for day. day can be one of dd day of current month day month[yy] day, month, year W Weekday N Weekday - night E Weekend Default is now. -ffrom Callers location. Default is from isdn.conf. -hhour Time hh[:mm[:ss]] of call. Default is now. -iratefile Use ratefile (usually rate-CC.dat) as source for telephone fees and ignore setting in isdn.conf. -llen Length of call in seconds. Default is 153 seconds. -o Show only booked providers. These are providers, which are listed in rate.conf. -p provider[,provider...] Print only info for given provider(s). provider is the provider number, without the leading VBN, or provider_variant if there are more variations, or B for business providers. -rvNN Show only providers whose VBN begins with NN. The VBN is also known as provider prefix consisting of VBN and provider number. -s Consider NUMBER as the name of a service and print all numbers / providers, which supply this service. -ttakt Print only providers, which have calculation impulses smaller or equal to takt. Default is 9999. -vverbose Set verbose level. -x provider[,provider...] Exclude these provider(s). DISPLAY AND RUN OPTIONS -C Connect to a running isdnrate daemon. This avoids long start-up times. -D Start as a daemon, waiting for connections from a client. The socket /tmp/isdnrate is created, which clients can connect to. -D2 Start as a daemon and go background. -CD3 Stop a running daemon. -Gn Print raw data for connection. n may be currently 97,98,99. -H Print a header. -L Print a semicolon separated list of vbn ; providername ; zone ; day ; time ; currency ; charge ; basicprice ; price ; duration ; charge/min ; takt ; minimum price -N Show info about following numbers. If no provider is given, the preselected provider is used. -Osocketfile Write socket to given filename on start of daemon. Default is tmp/isdnrate. -Ppiddir Write own PID to piddir/ on start of daemon. -Ssort Sort output by sort, which may be v vbn or n provider name. Default is by charge. -T Print a table of charges for daytimes weekday/weekend. -V Print version info and exit. -Xexplain Print additional information for charge or from rate-file. explain may be 1 (zone) 2 (charge/min, zone, day, time) 50 International areas 51 National zones 52 Services COMMENT Print C:COMMENT: info from rate files. If -s is given, the number of the service is also listed with -X1 or -X2. -Z Print info for LCR e.g. isdnrate -p1 -ZX 19430 shows the rate for provider 1 and the cheapest rate to this service. Note: Various output options may not be used together. Conflicting options will produce a warning. Note also: Sort by name or providernumber and -bbest will bring you the first best providers in sorting order, not the cheapest. And finally: Some options like -X50, -X51, -X52, -D, -V don't require a telephone NUMBER. FILES
rate-CC.dat, holiday-CC.dat, dest.gdbm, zone-CC-PPP.gdbm, isdn.conf, telrate.cgi and more. Note: The extension of zone- and dest data files depends on configuration. Recently .cdb is used. EXAMPLES
isdnrate -D2 Start the isdnrate daemon. isdnrate -D2 -P /var/run -O /tmp/isdnr_socket Start the isdnrate daemon, write to /var/run and create the given socket. isdnrate -CH -b5 -f01 -l120 Attersee Connect to running daemon, print a header and the best 5 rates from Vienna (01) to destination Attersee for a connection length of 2 Min- utes. isdnrate -CX -p1_2,24 +1 Show rates and zones for destination USA for providers 1, 2 and 24. isdnrate -C -l60 -rv010 HAM Show rates for a one minute call to Hamburg (HAM: airport code) and use only providers whose vbn begins with 010. So provider A with vbn 01030 is displayed, provider B with vbn 0190023 is not. isdnrate -CX -H -dW -b5 US CA Show a header, rates and zones for destinations USA and Canada for best 5 providers during workday. isdnrate -CHoX US Show header, rate and zone for destination USA for booked providers only. isdnrate -CsX -l60 Internet Show rates and numbers for service Internet for a 1 minute call. isdnrate -CZ 19430 Show rates and the best provider for this (service-)number. isdnrate -CD3 Stop the running isdnrate daemon. SIGNALS
A isdnrate daemon restarts (and therefore rereads its configuration) on getting a SIGHUP signal. SEE ALSO
rate-files(5), isdnlog(8), isdn.conf(5) BUGS
Definitely yes. Sometimes more then one daemon can be started, sometimes the socket is not removed, when the daemon terminates. if this happens ('socket in use'), do a rm /tmp/isdnrate and try again. AUTHORS
