These are ncid output modules and are normally located in the /usr/share/ncid directory.

The client, ncid, can be configured to call any one module. It cannot call multiple modules, but multiple ncid clients can be used each calling a different output module.

The ncid-skel output module is used as a template for writing a shell script output module. All it does is send the Caller ID data to standard output. This makes it useful for troubleshooting.

Each output module can be independently configured using /etc/ncid/ncidmodules.conf
