- whitelist file for ncidd hangup
The ncidd.whitelist file contains the expressions to match against a
telephone call name or number.
If the hangup option is set and if there is no match in the whitelist file,
a match in the blacklist file will cause ncidd to automatically
terminate the call.
The ncidd.whitelist file understands 4 types of lines:
- blank line:
- comment line:
- entry line:
Entry lines contain one or more expressions and an optional comment.
An expression is either a string of non-blank characters or everything
between double quotes. Multiple expressions are separated by spaces.
A comment must be last.
Entry line comments are either normal comments or match name comments.
A normal comment begins with a '#' and must not be immediately followed
by an equals sign. Anything after the '#' is ignored.
A match comment begins with '#=' and is followed by a name to display for
the caller when the entry matches either the number or name of a call.
Do not use double quotes around the name.
Example: ncidd.blacklist: ^999 #= Unwanted Area code
ncidd.whitelist: 9995550000 #= WHT (999) 555-0000
Each expression is compared to the caller name and number.
Upper and lower case letters are significant.
The number must be a string of digits as they appear in
A leading '1' is required if it is in /var/log/cidcall.log.
A partial name or number can match.
If regular expressions are used (regex = 1):
* POSIX Extended Regular Expression Syntax.
* Introduction to Regular Expressions
A '^' at the beginning of an expression means it must match at the start of
a name or number.
A "^1?" at the beginning makes a leading 1 optional.
This is only useful for US/Canadian numbers.
If an expression is longer than the name or number field it will never match.
Blacklist the unassigned 999 area code with and without a leading 1,
but allow a call from 999-555-1212:
Whitelist expression for an optional leading 1 (US/Canada only):
ncidd.8, ncidd.conf.5, ncidd.alias.5, ncidd.blacklist.5
