char* key ( void   ) 


This returns the ASTERISK_GPL_KEY, signifiying that you agree to the terms of the GPL stated in the ASTERISK_GPL_KEY. Your module will not load if it does not return the EXACT message:

 char *key(void) {
         return ASTERISK_GPL_KEY;


Definition at line 124 of file app_eval.c.


00125 {
00126    return ASTERISK_GPL_KEY;
00127 }

int load_module ( void   ) 

Initialize the module.

This function is called at module load time. Put all code in here that needs to set up your module's hardware, software, registrations, etc.

This function should return 0 on success and non-zero on failure. If the module is not loaded successfully, Asterisk will call its unload_module() function.
Initialize the Agents module. This function is being called by Asterisk when loading the module. Among other thing it registers applications, cli commands and reads the cofiguration file.

int Always 0.

Definition at line 107 of file app_eval.c.

References ast_register_application(), and eval_exec().

int unload_module ( void   ) 

Cleanup all module structures, sockets, etc.

This is called at exit. Any registrations and memory allocations need to be unregistered and free'd here. Nothing else will do these for you (until exit).

Zero on success, or non-zero on error.

Definition at line 96 of file app_eval.c.

References ast_unregister_application(), and STANDARD_HANGUP_LOCALUSERS.

00097 {
00098    int res;
00100    res = ast_unregister_application(app_eval);
00104    return res;
00105 }

int usecount ( void   ) 

Provides a usecount.

This function will be called by various parts of asterisk. Basically, all it has to do is to return a usecount when called. You will need to maintain your usecount within the module somewhere. The usecount should be how many channels provided by this module are in use.

The module's usecount.
