[Freeswitch-dev] Request for guidelines on endpoints inner working

Some more questions, maybe they're just misled:
The event/signals sent by the core to the channel are automatically
processed by the channel_receive_message() and channel_receive_event()
So, during a call, we have the signaling thread loop (that listen and
act on signaling coming from the interface), the
channel_receive_message loop (that listen and act on messages/events
coming from the core) and maybe (not really needed) the
channel_receive_event() loop (that listen and act on events from the
core, eg there is text to be sent to the remote party).
Is the above correct?
There are other ways for the world to send input to the channel?
The event/signals that the channel needs to send to the core (eg a
remote hangup has been received by the signaling thread) are all
communicated by changing the state of the channel and/or by calling
function (eg channel_on_hangup() ) ?
I mean, there is not something like channel_send_message() function,
to interact with the core?
ciao for now,
