Could anyone give me a chat script that redials until it connects when
the line is busy, dead, or what-have-you?  My current chat script
simply gives up on it under such situations.  It's kinda hard for the
shell script (that forks pppd off) to tell whether pppd succeeded or
not (it can't hear the modem negotiate with the remote modem ;-), so I
want to make my chat script a little more persistent (needless to say
chat is one of the worst programming languages I've ever seen ;-).

Thanks in advance
