Hi Stuart,

This it to be examined.

Yup. I'm going to work on this on the sequent gnokii release (the next
one is to be released in next few days -- it will mainly contain file
reading changes) -- which I plan to be bugfix release -- try to fix
all known bugs :-)

Is it something else then todo?

Thanks. That should be easy to fix.

Not sure about that. Is it just xgnokii or gnokii CLI as well?

Thanks for spotting. Yeah, sysdate feature would be nice and fairly
easy to implement. Anyone to submit a patch? ;-)

Yes. But IMHO it is important to have this in the output. If you don't
want to see any warnings use:
$ gnokii --whatever [options] 2>/dev/null

This is a caller group -- you can assing to an entry group Family, Friends, etc.

take care,
PS. Sorry I didn't respond some mails recently -- I was away for a
couple of days and then quite busy -- should answer them this week.
