I don't know if this will work but if you could try it that would be
helpful for documentation purposes.  First, here's the link for the wiki
page on the record app:



It references that you can set the playback_terminators channel variable

figure out a simple way to accomplish this. Any advice?


syntax is session:recordFile(file_name, max_len, silence_threshold,


session:recordFile("/tmp/blah.wav", 30000, 10, 10);  -- pressing # ends
