The Parallel Ring Daemon

General Information

The parallel ring daemon (pringd) is a little program that listens to the RI (Ring Indication) line of your modem. It detects when the phone rings, and it can execute commands according to ring patterns. The "parallel" comes from pringd's ability to check for several ring patterns in parallel.

Pringd does not interfere with mgetty, pppd or other programs that use the modem, because it uses the modem's RI line instead of sending/receiving characters.

Pringd was inspired by xringd.
