      Description

      For discussion, an implementation for setting variables to be passed to a
      remote system, as well as retrieving them on the remote system.

                • ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ******

      Note that I do not agree with the concept, but I am providing an implementation to end a thread on the mailing list.

        Patches not-quite cleanly on SVN of today, but seems to work.

        Discussion at Astricon Developer's: about 8-10 people thought this would be a useful thing to add. Steve Uhler commented that he's doing this with IAX text messages, and having this functionality would help him remove some hacks in his dialplan.

        Astricon: I brought up that it might be possible to do this with UUI as another method of sending variables via PSTN (ISDN) channels. This would be horribly ugly and extremely limited, so probably should not be attempted as part of what is "built in" to Asterisk, but might be worth mentioning here anyway for future ugly dialplan coders.

        Just a reminder: this seems to work, and I can't see any reason that it wouldn't be committed to TRUNK unless there is some objection... I could really use this for a variety of things that I'm doing with IAX2 trunking between semi-unrelated Asterisk systems.

        Updated to current. Also changed such that variable values may be of any length (and will be subdivided amongst as many IEs as required to encode the full length).
