       acucap - Automatic call unit capabilities file

       The  file  lists	 the  types  of	 autodial  modems  and describes their

       The program searches the file when it encounters an field in  the  file
       description.  If	 the  string matches a name entry in the file, the and
       generic dialing routines are used to place an outgoing  call  according
       to the attributes specified for the modem in the file.

       The  program  uses  the	same procedure for deciding how to activate an
       autodialer modem, except that searches for the brand name field of  the
       file in the database.

       Each line in the file describes how to dial a given type of modem. This
       description consists of strings, time delays, and flags that  are  used
       to  control  the	 action of any modem.  Fields are separated by a colon
       (:).  Entries that end in a backslash character (\) followed by a  new‐
       line are continued on the next line.

       The  first  entry  is the name or names of the modem.  If there is more
       than one name for a modem, the names are	 separated  by	vertical  bars

       The  fields  of the description follow the name.	 A field name followed
       by an equal sign (=) indicates that a string value  follows.   A	 field
       name  followed  by a pound sign (#) indicates that a numeric value fol‐
       lows. A field name followed by the separating colon  (:)	 represents  a

       The  fields  following the name of the modem define the capabilities of
       the modem.  Capabilities are either strings (str),  numbers  (num),  or
       Boolean	flags  (bool).	 A  string capability is specified as capabil‐
       ity=value; for example, ``ss=^A^B''.  A numeric capability is specified
       by  capability#value;  for  example, ``sd#1''.  A Boolean capability is
       specified by simply listing the capability.  Strings that are not spec‐
       ified cause nothing to be issued.

       ab (str)	 Abort	string.	  This	string	is  sent  to  the  modem if is

       cd (num)	 Completion delay.  This number gives the time to wait between
		 completion  string characters (in seconds, unless the Boolean
		 is specified).

       cr (bool) Setting this Boolean  causes  the  program  to	 wait  in  the
		 generic dial routine until the modem senses a carrier.

       co (str)	 A  modem  command  string which instructs the modem to change
		 from the default speed to  the	 speed	specified  by  the  xs

       cs (str)	 Completion  string.   The  modem  issues  this	 string	 after
		 receiving and responding to synchronization and dial strings.

       da (num)	 Dial acknowledge.  This number gives the time to wait	before
		 looking for a dial response (in seconds).

       db (bool) Debug	mode.	Setting this Boolean causes the generic dialer
		 to give more information as it dials.

       dd (num)	 Dial delay.  This number gives the time between dial  charac‐
		 ters (in seconds) unless the Boolean is specified.

       di (str)	 Dial  initialization.	This string is used to start a dialing
		 sequence (placed just before the number to dial.)

       dr (str)	 Dial response.	 The modem sends  this	string	if  a  dialing
		 sequence that was just issued is successful.

       ds (str)	 Disconnect  string.  This string is sent to the modem when is
		 finally disconnected.

       dt (str)	 Dial termination.  This string is used to terminate a dialing
		 sequence (placed just after the number to dial.)

       fd (num)	 Full delay.  This number is the time to wait for a carrier to
		 be detected (in seconds).  If the call is  not	 completed  in
		 this time, an error is returned.

       hu (bool) This  Boolean	causes	the  modem to hang up the phone if the
		 line goes away.

       is (num)	 This number specifies the speed the modem must be initialized
		 at.  The conversation speed will later be set as specified by
		 the xs field.

       ls (bool) Use an internal sleep routine rather than for delays.	 Thus,
		 all delays are given in microseconds rather than seconds.

       os (str)	 Online string.	 The modem sends this string after carrier has
		 been detected.

       rd (bool) Causes a 1-second delay after toggling dtr.  This action will
		 only be taken if the re flag is also set.

       re (bool) This  Boolean	causes	the modem to toggle dtr (data terminal
		 ready) before beginning synchronization.  It is used to reset
		 the present condition of the modem.

       rs (str)	 Replacement  string.	This string is a single character that
		 will be substituted for an equal sign (=) or dash (-) in  the
		 number	 to  be	 dialed.  Used so that delay characters can be
		 represented uniformly, but allowing the correct delay charac‐
		 ter to be passed to a given modem.

       sd	 (num)	Synchronization	 delay.	  This	number	gives the time
		 between synchronization characters  (in  seconds  unless  the
		 Boolean is specified.)

       si (bool) This modem is attached to an interface that cannot return any
		 characters until carrier is detected.	Digital's DMF32 inter‐
		 face acts in this way.

       sr (str)	 Synchronization  response.   What the modem sends in response
		 to a synchronization string.

       ss (str)	 Synchronization string.  The first string the	modem  expects
		 to receive; a check to see if the modem is operating.

       xs (num)	 Specifies  the speed the modem will operate at after initial‐
		 ization at the default speed per the is field.

       The following example shows an entry for a Digital DF03 modem:
       df03|DF03|dec df03:\

       Shared autodial modem data base
