gigaconf - Gigaset base configuration
gigaconf [option] ...
gigaconf accesses the Gigaset base configuration and writes the result to its standard

-e [-]list, --extension [-]list
Limit output to the settings corresponding to the comma-separated list of extension

or integrated in, the Gigaset base. (Cordless phones, analog ports, integrated USB
port, cordless datasets, or integrated answering machines.) Extension number 0 may
be used for the base itself, ie. for those configuration settings not referring to
any specific device.
Ranges may be specified with two numbers separated by a hyphen or colon. If list
is prefixed by a hyphen, the selection is inverted, ie. the extensions specified in
list are excluded from processing.
