Do you have the AT command set?  If not, I found this -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hayes_command_set

I don't have code for you but I have a plan.  I would treat the commands as a tree an implement using mostly switch statements.  I would also use if statements near the bottom as applicable.  Here's an example of the top.  This is assuming that I've already determined the first two characters were indeed AT.

pCh is a pointer to the 3rd character at this point in execution.

switch ( *pCh )
{
    case 'A':
        Third_A ( pCh + 1 );
        break;

    case 'D':
        Dial ( pCh + 1 );
        break;

......

}


function Third_A ( char *pCh )
{
    switch ( *pCh )
    {
        case '0':
        case '\0':
            AnswerCall();
            break;

        case '/':
            RepeatLastCommand();   // Somehow you'd have to know what this is.  I have ideas if you don't.
            break;

        default:
            ErrorHandlerForUnknownCommand();
            return -1;
    }

    return 0;
}

As I think about the problems, it occurs to me that C++ might be a better choice.  But that's up to you.

Here is a page regarding "Controlling your Modem with AT Commands": http://www.zoltrix.com/support_html/modem/usemodem.htm

You can see the implementation of "Linux Generic Soft Modem" at: http://bellard.org/linmodem.html
The above software has a AT command parser.

And also, you can refer the following link to look at "Simple Hayes AT Command Parser": http://embeddedfreak.wordpress.com/2008/11/03/simple-hayes-at-command-parser/
