The code sucks. But it already works somehow. It can do setup (read
the configuration), intialize the connection, disconnect and run ping
(implemented as getting imei). You can run all these commands with
dcop (eg. run kdcop and try each function; to estabilish the
connection, assuming you have correct .gnokiirc, run setup()). It is
not multithreaded (I think it should be, at least for keep aliving

Anyway I don't like the way I did it, but I have no idea how to use
DCOP in any other way. How I think it should look like:
 - first of all we have interface to all gnokii functions as the
interface to libgnokii - I don't want this to be binded to KDE, GNOME,
qt, glib, whatever -- let it be the most portable thing.
 - each communication plugin, after the registration, wraps all the
interface above and calls the right function doing the necessary
conversion if needed

Can anybody with more DCOP/Qt experience lead me in the right
direction? At the moment i think pligin class should not inherit from
the gnokii class and that was the wrong choice. Just two communication
plugin should call methods from gnokii object. And we can (I think)
create many gnokii objects for different phone connections.

The code is at but I think I will
change it a couple of times this night.

take care,
Pawel Kot
