ncidd.blacklist — blacklist file for ncidd hangup

Description

The ncidd.blacklist 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.blacklist file understands 4 types of lines:

blank line:

skip it

comment line:

skip it

entry line:

process it

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 name 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:    407-555-5670    #= Unwanted Marketing Call
