It's not a shell script...
Anyhow, the point is very simple: users sometimes find themselves in need of
a simple dialer program, just like I did, and they tend to get utterly

For me, the simplest solution was to derive the interface expected by the
modem by stracing cu, and writing a small C program that implements it.
