NAME

       vboxtcl - tcl commands for vboxgetty

CONTENT

       With vbox version 2.0, tcl can be used as a script language to act on incoming calls.

       Incoming  calls  are  still  taken  by  vboxgetty, but further actions are made by the tcl
       script.

VARIABLES

       These are additional variables supplied by vboxgetty.

       vbox_var_bindir
              directory with vbox commands.

       vbox_var_savename
              name for this message to save. The name is constructed from time  and  process  id.
              It's a good idea to use this name, but you can also use a different name.

       vbox_var_rectime
              maximum seconds to record.

       vbox_msg_beep
              filename   with    full    path    of    the    message    to    play    as    beep

              filename   with   full   path   of   the   message   to   play   after   a  timeout

       vbox_flag_standard

              script should not.

       vbox_flag_beep
              this  is  TRUE  if the script should play the beep message, and FALSE if the script
              should not.

       vbox_flag_timeout

FUNCTIONS

       vboxgetty also provides some additional functions to the user.

       Return Codes
              Most functions will use these return codes:

              ERROR  An error occurred.

              HANGUP The connection was ended. Script should end now.

              OK     The whole message was played, nothing occurred.

              Any other error code is a touchtone sequence, that was detected during playing  the
              message.

       vbox_breaklist <add|rem> <sequence> [...]
              With  this  command  you  can  control  which  touchtone  sequences  vboxgetty will
              recognize.

              Touchtone sequences have the format *NUMBER#, where NUMBER is  a  sequence  of  the
              characters  0-9  and A-D. Even single numbers must be given in the format *NUMBER#.
              Vboxgetty detects if the caller gives a number as a single digit or as a part of  a
              sequence.

              add <sequence> [...]
                     Add  a touchtone sequence to breaklist. You can add up to 8 sequences at one
                     time.

              rem <sequence> [...]
                     Remove a touchtone sequence from breaklist. You can remove up to 8 sequences
                     at one time. You can use all to remove all sequences.

       vbox_put_message <message>
              Play  a  message and returns an error code depending on the reason to stop playing.
              Default return codes.

              message
                     full name of the message file (with path).

       vbox_get_message <savename> <timelimit>
              Records a message. Default return codes. Options are:

              savename
                     full name of the file for saving the message.

              timelimit
                     maximum time to record the message.

       vbox_wait <seconds>
              Waits for several seconds for an input from caller. Default return codes.   Options
              are:

              seconds
                     time to wait.

       vbox_init_touchtones
              Clears  vboxgetty touchtone sequence. Normal way is to append all new touchtones to
              the sequence, the sequence is only cleared when a "*" touchtone is received.

       vbox_pause <ms>
              waits a specific number of milliseconds.

              ms     number of milliseconds to wait.

       vbox_get_nr_new_messages <messagebox>
              Return the number of new messages in the directory.

              messagebox
                     the directory to scan

       vbox_get_nr_all_messages <messagebox>
              Return the number of messages in the directory.

              messagebox
                     the directory to scan
