Re: dialing question


Each comma is (I believe) a 3-second pause.  You will want to manually go
through this process to see exactly how long you need to wait to dial each

When I'm travelling outside of my service provider's area, I edit the script (/etc/chatscripts/provider) and add the area code.  I'd like to edit the script to: (1) dial the toll-free number on my long-distance calling card, (2) wait for the tone, (3) enter the 4-digit code, (4) wait for a dial tone, and (5) dial the ISP's phone number.  I've looked over the documnetation, but I can't figure out how to get those pauses into the script.  Can anyone point me in the right direction here?  I use scripts from the Debian ppp package, but if one of the other dialers (wvdial, diald, x-isp) handles this better, I'd switch.
