> I programmed a billing system based on the astcc code. I wanted to add some 'real-time' calculation of the callcost so the customer can see how much money is left in his prepaid account while he is incall. My problem is now that my 'real-time' calculation already starts when the dial-command ist executed. But it should not start before the call is established. The variables like 'ANSWEREDTIME' are not set before the dial() application exited. Therefore they give no information while still incall.

Perhaps Dial()'s 'M' or 'G' flags will help you?  See here:
