Asterisk AGI Area Code Lookup

Filed under: Shell Script Sundays — at 6:00 am on Sunday, January 9, 2011

I’ve written about my Asterisk meddling before in my Asterisk AGI IP Address lookup post. This time I’m writing about an Area Code Lookup Script I wrote that was inspired by Nerd Vittles WiFi Finder. The script prompts the user to enter a 3 digit area code and then reads the results back to the user.

The tar.gz file needs to be extracted and the resulting files placed into your agi-bin. The source can be found here.

Here is what it sounds like for the 404 areacode (ogg / mp3). After recording this I found out it would probably be a good idea to unique the array so items are not read twice, but it works for me.

[…] I stumbled upon PulseCaster while searching through Fedoras repositories, I was intrigued and had to give it a try. By the website this is the description: “PulseCaster is a simple PulseAudio-based tool for making podcast interviews. It is designed for ease of use and simplicity. The user makes a call with a preferred PulseAudio-compatible Voice-over-IP (VoIP) softphone application such as Ekiga or Twinkle, and then starts PulseCaster to record the conversation to a multimedia file. The resulting file can be published as a podcast or distributed in other ways.” It works really well for phone interviews or just recording that call you want to remember. I wouldn’t advise recording conversations without the other parties permission. I don’t know what the law is on that, but if you’re using it for its intended purpose (podcasting) then it serves its purpose. I actually used it to record the Asterisk Area Code Lookup Script. […]
