Thank you very much!
You gave me a lot of thing to try and check out :D
I'll look at it as soon as possible and post the result!

Eh, the software is good but I'll agree the public relations are a bit
lacking :)

I'm just another user who happens to have poked around the smsreader
code. I'll try to help.
I believe the text messages from --smsreader are saved somewhere in
/tmp if I remember correctly. Let me know if I'm off on that.

To answer your question about why ./gnokii --smsreader > somefile
isn't working, it's because nearly all that output is not stdout but
rather stderror. The ">" character only redirects stdout by default -
to record std_error, try:
gnokii --smsreader 2>&1 somefile

This will combine both stderror and stdout into one file, but you'll
have a bunch of junk to sort through to get your text.

If you really want to do it right, I would check out the smsd
application in gnokii. It can save text messages to a specified file
or database.

Hope that gets you started.

I told you I don't know how to use the --smsreader option and that I'm new
to gnokii.
What's your problem?
It looks to me that my question was simple, but...
What should I write in the terminal to make gnokii read incoming sms and
write them in a file called "samp.txt"?
I tried with gnokii --smsreader > "samp.txt"
but nothing was written on the file and no sms was deleted from the phone
when an sms arrived.
As soon as the guide says

smsreader keeps reading incoming SMS and saves them into the mailbox.

For each SMS: read, print on stdout and delete from phone.

and nothing of this happens I think I'm doing something wrong.
smsreader doesn't accept any parameter and I don't know what to do.

Any polite answer or request for more information is well accepted.

I'm using latest gnokii build for windows xp.
My phone is a nokia 6021 connected via bluetooth.
the getsms and deletesms options work well!

We don't use a forum and do not intend to.

Anyway, I would like to use the --smsreader option but I don't know how it

And what you exactly want to know?

I need gnokii to wait for an incoming sms and save it to a txt.

smsreader does thing loke this.

It looks like smsreader option does something like that, but I don't know to
do it.

What don't you know?

Can you help me, please?

No, you didn't ask any question that we could answer.
