DESCRIPTION
       The isdnrate program prints various information from rate-files(5). It's main  purpose  is
       the  calculation of telefon rates from your location to an arbitrary destination at a cer-
       tain time and of a certain length for all the providers in a rate-file.

   NUMBER
       A telefon 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, 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.

       -dday Calc rates for day. day can be one of

	      dd day of current month
	      dd.mm day month
	      dd.mm.yy[yy] day, month, year
	      W Weekday
	      N Weekday - night
	      E Weekend

       Default is now.

       -ffrom Callers location. Default ist from isdn.conf.

       -hhour Time hh[:mm[:ss]] of call. Default is now.

       -llen Length of call in second. Default value is 153 secs.

       -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  varia-
       tions, or B for business providers.

       -s  Consider NUMBER as the name of a service and print all numbers / providers, which sup-
       ply 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 startup 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/isdnrate.pid 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. If  you  gave  conflicting  options
       you'll see 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 telefon 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 isdnrate.pid to /var/run and create thew given socket.

       isdnrate -CH -b5 -f01 -l120 Attersee
       Connect	to running daemon, print a header and the best 5 rates from Vienna (01) to desti-
       nation Attersee for a connection length of 2 Minutes.

       isdnrate -CX -p1_2,24 +1
       Show rates and zones for destination USA for providers 1_2 and 24.

       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 minutes 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
       Definitly 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/isd-
       nrate and try again.
