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' 

Running Script


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.
