Package ncid-client

NCID (Network Caller ID) client


The NCID client obtains the Caller ID from the NCID server and normally
displays it in a GUI window. It can also display the Called ID in a
terminal window or, using an output module, format the output and send it
to another program.

This package contains the NCID client and output modules that are not
separate packages.

Version: 1.16
