DESCRIPTION

    `Phonebill' is, simply said, a logfile analyser. What it basically
    does is scan the logfile(s) generated by a terminal program or a
    mailer, extract all information about calls you have made by using
    your modem, and store this in its own (short) format. Features:

    * Requires Kickstart 2.04 or higher.

    * Supports new 3.0 features (new look menus, ...).

    * Nice gadtools compliant GUI.

    * User-definable callrates, supporting  rate exceptions for certain
      days and dates. Handles fees and time-units with up to 4 decimals
      (e.g.  $1.2344 dollars per 30.5678 seconds) for extra accuracy.

    * Supports logfiles generated by:
         * AmigaUUCP Timelog
         * AutoPilot
         * JrComm
         * MagiCall
         * MicroDot
         * MultiFax professional
         * NComm
         * Terminus
         * TKR-BTX
         * TrapDoor
         * TrapFax
         * Term (Term action-log and Term call-log)

    * Automatical logfile truncating.

    * Generates miscellaneous reports: statistics, total costs, etc.

    * Context-sensitive online help.


NEW FEATURES

    * Added TKR-BTX support.

    * Added AutoPilot support.

    * Fixed a problem with the MicroDot logfile: A call ending with
      "NETCALL abgebrochen" was not recognized as a valid call, and
      therefore skipped.

    * Any trailing spaces entered at the end of the from/to-date strings
      are ignored now.

    * The `LogScan' signature from the term logfile did not have the
      appropriate dateformat. Therefore, it could happen that the
      signature wasn't recognized during some months, which might have
      resulted in `fake' (duplicate) new calls.

    * Generating report now is approx twice as fast due to the use of
      asynchronous I/O.

    * More commandline arguments are supported.

    * Added a "Save"-button in the "Settings not saved" requester.

    * Added `dupe'-detection: duplicate calls are automatically removed.
      So now there is no harm done when a logfile is accidently scanned
      twice. I recommend that you re-save your binary logfile by
      pressing `Save' in the maintenance panel, so that dupes from
      previous versions are removed (if there were any).
