    The only thing needed is to build a front-end.
    If gnokii did what I want I wouldn't be writing my own application. It is severely limited in some important areas. It does however contain some code which may be useful to me, particularly in the area of message handling.

    Ah but how did he know that you knew that it doesn't do what you need to know it can do?

    I messed around with Linux as my OS for a while but felt it was missing certain things... one of which was a decent phonecontrol type software. Good luck. Keep us up to date!

    M10K, Lilli 7", 512MB, 80Gb HD, slim CD-RW/DVD Combi, nLite Win XP, CentraFuse.


    Planned for years, built for ages, tested for a while, almost installed, never gonna be perfect...

    Well, the most obvious one is that it works very poorly with my phone.

    Ok, sorry if you found my post offending, i was just wondering which features could be missing in gnokii when you have a look on the command line possibilities.

    No, I didn't take any offence at all. I was in the middle of doing some other stuff in work at the time and only had a moment to reply. Sorry, I realise on rereading the thread that my responses were abrupt.

    One of the problems for me with gnokii is that the codebase is bloated with nokia oriented code which is not of any use to anyone considering a generic approach. Also not all of the command line options are avaliable under all circumstances.

    Yes there is useful code in gnokii and the atgen driver does allow some the features to work in a more generic way, but it does not really suit my purposes at this point, that does not however mean that I am ruling out the use of libgnokii, or a stripped version of it in my application, but my initial testing with gnokii was disappointing to say the least.

    Support for CDMA phones is the biggest thing for me, something no one else has been able to do well so far.
