[Freeswitch-users] Bug in mod_commands.c with show calls command

Terrific. "show calls as xml" works great and just what I needed.

P.S. "show calls as csv" still has the comma bug. Not a big deal since I 
can get it as XML. CSV needs quotes around field values that contain a 
comma. Pretty easy to fix. Few lines of C (strchr for "," and if found, 
put quotes around field value).

Perhaps you may be reading up on something quickly and not worrying about
the absolute correctness of something that is not critical to our time to explain.

The proper syntax for the command is "show calls as xml" and you are not really using XMLRPC you are hitting it via direct url.
so you will then need.

anything in the show command can be replied to with "as xml"

also, for fun, try

show calls as csv :::

      I am using the xml_rpc interface like so:

      I get a response in a table, which is a little bit undesirable because I
      want to parse the result in a program and don't want to parse a bunch of
      HTML (just seems inelegant and wasteful), so I instead tried the following

      That works better, but then another wrinkle appears. Caller ID (and Callee
      ID) names sometimes have commas, which messes up the CSV.

      This appears to be a bug in mod_commands.c (or I suppose you could call it
      an artifact of somebody coding up something quickly and not worrying about
      the absolute correctness of something that is not critical to the core).
      There is also another bug with show calls via webapi in that the generated
      HTML has spurious <td> tags. I think the spurious <td> tag bug arises due
      to lines 3145-6 in mod/applications/mod_commands/mod_commands.c. Finally,
      another bug (or maybe just unimplemented feature) is that xmlapl isn't
      really different from webapi.

      These problems occur in the latest source tree (20100301).

      I am wondering if (a) one of the developers can fix these or (b) if I fix
      the bugs, how can I submit patches [and if I submit patches, will they be
      accepted into the main tree]?

      The fixes are pretty trivial and I'd be happy to code them up if somebody
      will tell me how I can submit the patches (haven't done it before).
