Fixes 1.1 Was still referring to an old script wakeup_dev... Thanks to Tom Arnold for discovering that. Introduction This is another wakeup script for Asterisk. Why another one? Well, I have seen some great solutions out there prior to this one. I was in need of a solution that allowed for several calls though. I also wanted to get some experience with AGI on Asterisk. This is a single script that does it all without any type of daemon, cron job or similar. Just a perl script that works almost completely out of the outgoing folder. I tried to make a clean solution with no dependencies outside of regular Asterisk. Installation Just drop the script in /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/ (or wherever you have your agi scripts). Make it executable. Make sure the /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing and /var/spool/asterisk/wakeups exist with the correct permission. In your dial plan, do something along the lines... exten => *63,1,Answer exten => *63,2,AGI(jwakeup.agi) exten => *63,3,Hangup Features * Single script * No daemon, no crontab * Can schedule an unlimited amount of wakeup calls * Can list them and delete individual calls * Reoccurring wakeups as well as "one-time" wakeups * Snooze * Allows you to press keys in the middle of prompts Dependencies Asterisk 1.4 (could work on 1.2 as well, I am not sure) General perl with Time Unix touch command Core sounds and extra sounds How it works The program works almost completely out of the /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing directory (there is a use of /var/spool/asterisk/wakeups as well, but that is for temporary files and you could instead use /tmp if you want). The solution is based on typical Asterisk call files. If you don't run asterisk as root, make sure you have write permissions in the above directories. The program uses the unix touch command to set the time of the wakeup. Make sure the path to touch is correctly reflected in the program (my $TOUCH = "/usr/bin/touch"). Contact I am not setting out to further develop this script. If you find bugs please let me know (email@example.com) and I might fix them :-) I have been using this script myself for a couple of months so I am convinced that it runs fine. There might still be corner cases that I have not run into Thanks, // Jonas
