NAME

mkzonedb - Utility create a zone file for isdnlog

SYNOPSIS

mkzonedb -r zonefile -d database [-v] [-V] [-o Oz] [-l len]

DESCRIPTION

mkzonedb reads a text file with zone (area code) information, and writes it in a special format to the database file so that other apps such as isdnlog can easily access the data.
 
This data is used to determine in what "zone" a given area code is in relation to another, to see what rate applies to a call between these area codes ("is the call a local call").
 
This utility is really only used during the building of the isdnlog-data package, but it may be useful for those who want to create their own custom tables.

OPTIONS

-r zonefile
the text file with the zone information. Use "-" for standard input.
 
-d database
the output database filename
 
-v
verbose mode
 
-V
show version information, and quit (don't do anything)
 
-o Oz
Use "Oz" area zone. Default is 1. (What does this mean, exactly?)
 
-l len
"len" is the length of areacodes.
 
If 5 or more is given, then more space is allocated for the internal tables (40000 instead of 10000 numbers allowed). Other values aren't really used.
