Yes, in the sense that all of this is done by sending commands to a serial
port, and listening for a reply -- modem commands tend to be reasonably
simple and straightforward, from what little I've seen. There's a number of
serial port modules available; I don't know if there's a higher-level
library specifically for sending modem commands, but you might try searching
the Vaults (http://www.vex.net/parnassus/).
