hangup-message-skel - Man Page


hangup-message-skel [-h]

hangup-message-skel [-v] <string>

where string is in this format:
*FNMBR*<formatted number>*NTYPE*<type of device>\
*CTRY*<country code>*LOCA*<location>*CARI*<carrier>\


Hangup-message-skel is a template for leaving caller specific messages prior to terminating a call.

Your script name should be the same name without -skel. Script names use the format: hangup-<name>

Script is not called if caller number or name is in ncidd.whitelist.

The example below assumes you have copied hangup-message-skel to hangup-message for your customized version of hangup-message-skel.

Delete the caller and message lines that are in hangup-message. If you want to detect a name, comment the NMBR line and uncomment the NAME line:

Add your own caller and message lines to hangup-message:


caller[1]="<number>"  message[1]="<recording file>"


caller[1]="<name>"  message[1]="<recording file>"

You can add as many caller-message lines as you want.  You would need to record the message files if you want to leave a personalized message.

Use this format for a message name for your recording: <number>.rmd

Server hangup extensions are only executed by the server unless testing.

Execute your custom hangup-message in a terminal window by itself for testing. Only fields used in the script are needed for the input string. To test your custom hangup-message script with a number:

/usr/share/ncid/extensions/hangup-message -v "*NMBR*4075551212*"
