Does anybody know if there is a pager program available on FreeBSD?  A pager
program is supposed to monitor a phone line for RINGs via a spare modem and
then after a certain delay, dial a numeric pager to signal a possible
message on the answering machine.

If there aren't any pager programs available on FBSD, can someone give me
instructions on how to read and write to serial ports and where I can get
more programming info for the FBSD APIs?  I do programming on the PC and
Mac, but am new to FBSD so please bear with me if these questions sound too
basic.

Thanks,

Leonard
