Perl event socket client
This is old stuff! We keep it for posterity's sake. You are better off using ESL FreeSWITCH::Client is broken.
Different types of Clients
There are at least two libraries, POE and Anthm's FreeSWITCH::Client. POE instructions are at the bottom of this page, a FreeSWITCH::Client example is also available.
Install via CPAN
perl -MCPAN -e'install POE' perl -MCPAN -e'install POE::Filter::FSSocket' perl -MCPAN -e'install Term::Visual'
At this point you will see a curses-based application ready for inputting commands.
Listening for events
At the console type any of the following examples
event plain ALL event plain CUSTOM conference::maintenance event plain CHANNEL_CREATE CHANNEL_DESTROY CUSTOM conference::maintenance event plain CUSTOM sofia::register sofia::expire
And then switch to event window by giving command w event, and you will begin to see events as they happen (you may need to make them happen). But even with nothing happening the system emits scheduler heartbeat events.
