Hi, yes thanks! i checked that and i do not have an issue in building the module, that
is clear thanks to that page and other module source codes, what i do not understand
are things like (locking mainly): when freswitch calls the unload function in the module, 
is there a chance that some of the code could be in the middle of execution in a different call (different thread)?
, can the load function be called more than once ? i know (deducted really) that the main function, 
the one that actually implements the functionality can be called from different threads (as i read freeswitch uses different
threads to treat incoming calls into the switch) so if i have something shared but i know it wont change
for as long as the module is loaded i do not need to put a lock but that same thing has some memory allocated
that will be freed when freeswitch deleted the memory pool after unloading the module that was passed at loading time ..
i also read that using the session memory pool is not good idea, so almos all stock modules use it like vm ?
so i m trying to figure out all these but i do not find docs about it ... and you know how murphy is ..
