Hello again list,
Did the following: (on 1.4.42 installation)
asterisk -rx “core show application read”
-= Info about application ‘Read’ =-
Read a variable
Reads a #-terminated string of digits a certain number of times from the
user in to the given variable.
filename — file to play before reading digits or tone with option i
maxdigits — maximum acceptable number of digits. Stops reading after
maxdigits have been entered (without requiring the user to
press the ‘#’ key).
Defaults to 0 – no limit – wait for the user press the ‘#’
Any value below 0 means the same. Max accepted value is 255.
option — options are ‘s’ , ‘i’, ‘n’
‘s’ to return immediately if the line is not up,
‘i’ to play filename as an indication tone from your
‘n’ to read digits even if the line is not up.
attempts — if greater than 1, that many attempts will be made in the
event no data is entered.
timeout — An integer number of seconds to wait for a digit response.
than 0, that value will override the default timeout.
Read should disconnect if the function fails or errors out.
I need for Asterisk to “keep going” if I have a problem with Read() or at
least playback some kind of warning. Any suggestions?
P.S. The “Read should disconnect” line does not show up in my 10.0
