[Freeswitch-dev] Creating Modules

Thank you for the rapid response.

Yes the rabbit trails with C are many and not having a deep knowledge of C
or FreeSwitch's design quickly make my situation appear equal to the logic
that, if you have enough money to not need a loan the banks are eager to lend.

I need to spend more time trying to understand the code, yet as happens so
often in anyone's code, more commented code would save many hours trying
to understand.

As for documentation I very much appreciate what is available. And
there is a lot.
In fact there may be more available then I realize as the search under
is sometimes incomplete. For example if I were to search for "Lua" the result
would be mod_lua and I could follow the links on that page but I have found by
trial and error other examples of Lua code not linked from there, yet not
represented by the search. Reminds me of Differential Equations where I need
to know the form of the solution to arrive at the answer. Regardless I
am always
happy to stumble upon another gem.

I will try to reformulate my questions.
