    It's been so many years since I created code for this so I don't remember enough to help you with details. These days however there are so many libraries and applications that do the same thing so take advantage of them instead of struggling yourself.

    Even if you decide to struggle on cross-referencing with the PDU output of another application will be very useful. Here's one google hit http://twit88.com/home/opensource/sms
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
