       mkzonedb - Utility create a zone file for isdnlog


       mkzonedb -r zonefile -d database [-v] [-V] [-o Oz] [-l len]


       mkzonedb  reads  a text file with zone (area code) information, and writes it in a special
       format to the database file so that other apps such as isdnlog can easily access the data.

       This data is used to determine in what "zone" a given area code is in relation to another,
       to see what rate applies to a call between these area codes ("is the call a local call").

       This  utility  is really only used during the building of the isdnlog-data package, but it
       may be useful for those who want to create their own custom tables.


       -r zonefile
              the text file with the zone information.  Use "-" for standard input.

       -d database
              the output database filename

       -v     verbose mode

       -V     show version information, and quit (don't do anything)

       -o Oz  Use "Oz" area zone. Default is 1. (What does this mean, exactly?)

       -l len "len" is the length of areacodes.
              If 5 or more is given, then more space is allocated for the internal tables  (40000
              instead of 10000 numbers allowed). Other values aren't really used.
