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.
