dahdi_genconf - Generate configuration for Dahdi channels.


dahdi_genconf [options] [generator...]


This script generate configuration files for Dahdi hardware. It uses two information sources:
 The actual Dahdi hardware is automatically detected on the host.
A configuration file that supplements the hardware information. Its location may be overridden via the "GENCONF_PARAMETERS" environment variable.
The dahdi_genconf script can generate various kinds of configuration files as specified by the generator arguments. Each generator is a perl class in Dahdi::Config::Gen namespace. The generator names on the command line are the class names in lowercase.
The following generators are currently implemented: system, modules, spantypes, assignedspans, chandahdi, unicall, users.
For further documentation on each, please user perldoc on the relevant class. E.g: "perldoc Dahdi::Config::Gen::Chandahdi"
Each generator on the command line may be passed custom options by assigning a comma separated list of options to the generator name. E.g:
 dahdi_genconf system chandahdi=verbose unicall

Global options:

-V --version
Version -- print version string and exit.
-v --verbose
Verbose -- sets the 'verbose' option for all generators.
-F --freepbx
Freepbx -- sets the 'freepbx' option for all generators. Currently, chandahdi is affected.
mode may be E1, J1 or T1.
Enables the generator spantypes and the option line-mode to it. (Equivalent to the option "--line-mode" to "dahdi_span_types"). This will generate a "span-types.conf" file with a single wildcard line setting the line mode to mode.

Implementation notes:

genconf_parameters parsing is done via "Dahdi::Config::Params". An object representing the parsed data is instantiated by: "Dahdi::Config::Params->new()". The "item()" method of this object contains all the hard coded defaults of the configuration directives.
A configuration object is instantiated by "Dahdi::Config::Gen->new($params)". The mapping of configuration directives into semantic configuration is done in the constructor.
A single generator is run via the the "run_generator()" method of the configuration object.
