Help requested with capturing output from gnokii after send sms

Godfrey-2

Hello

I have set up a number of scripts that notify me of a range of server room
potential issues.

Everything is working fine.

How ever this evening I realised that I am not keeping tabs on the number of
sms's sent out. I load the phone with say 200 sms's I need to know when they
about to run out.

I am happy to figure out a bash script to do this if needs be. However I
have a problem.

I dont seem to have any success at capturing the output form after gnokii
after send sms

root@32.164 ~ # echo "This is a test message" | gnokii --sendsms
+27mycellnumber --report > /var/lock/smscounter/count.txt
GNOKII Version 0.6.31
Send succeeded with reference 168!
root@32.164 ~ # echo "This is a test message" | gnokii --sendsms
+27mycellnumber
GNOKII Version 0.6.31
Send succeeded with reference 169!
root@32.164 ~ # echo "This is a test message" | gnokii --sendsms
+27mycellnumber >> /var/lock/smscounter/count.txt
GNOKII Version 0.6.31
Send succeeded with reference 170!


> or >> does not capture any out put

as you can see here

root@32.164 ~ # touch /var/lock/smscounter/count.txt
root@32.164 ~ # cat /var/lock/smscounter/count.txt
root@32.164 ~ # cat /var/lock/smscounter/count.txt
root@32.164 ~ #

My question has a bash script been written to keep tabs on the number of
sms's sent, if not is there any way of keeping a record of the number of
sms's sent, or if that is not possible is there any way of capturing the
output specifically this part

GNOKII Version 0.6.31
Send succeeded with reference 170!

for later processing.

Your assistance would be most appreciated.

Thank you for your time in helping me.
