       wvdialconf - build a configuration file for wvdial(1)

       wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

       wvdialconf detects your modem, its maximum baud rate, and a good initialization string and
       generates or updates the wvdial(1) configuration file based on this information.

       wvdialconf is completely non-interactive.  You still  need  to  edit  /etc/wvdial.conf  to
       specify	the  phone number, login name, and password of your internet account in order for
       wvdial(1) to work.

       It is safe to run wvdialconf if a configuration file already exists.  In that  case,  only
       the Modem, Baud, Init, and Init2 options are changed in the [Dialer Defaults] section, and
       only if autodetection is successful.

       We're willing to entertain the possibility.  Let us know if you have any problems by send-
       ing an e-mail to <wvdial@nit.ca>.

       Also,  there  is  now a mailing list for discussion about wvdial.  If you are having prob-
       lems, or have anything else to say, send e-mail to <wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca>.

       An exit status of 0 means that a modem was detected and the configuration file was updated

       Any other value means that something went wrong and the configuration file was unchanged.
