Hangup-skel is a template for writing a server hangup extension.  Use a new name to duplicate the file and make the necessary modifications. You need to write the code to check if a number should return the word hangup to STDOUT. You have the option of returning a recording file name to use with a hangup. Your script name should follow this format: hangup-<name>

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

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

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

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

/usr/share/ncid/extensions/hangup-myscript -v "*NMBR*0000000000*"
