Excellent explanation, Michael. Thanks a lot.

> dialplan module goes back to the task list and starts executing each
> action, one at a time.

> task list; instead I should *execute this action RIGHT NOW* before I
> continue."
> To see that for real, consider this extension:
>   <extension name="inline test">
>     <condition field="destination_number" expression="^(5599)$">
>       <action application="log" data="INFO I'm first!"/>
>       <action application="log" data="INFO Oh no you're not!"
> inline="true"/>
>       <action application="log" data="INFO Bummer, dude!"/>
>     </condition>
>   </extension>
> So, when I dial 5599, which debug line gets printed first? To find out,
> check out this pastebin <http://pastebin.freeswitch.org/18406>.
> The dialplan processing starts at line #41 of the pastebin. Every log line
> that starts with "Dialplan:" represents the dialplan module parsing the
> dialplan. The interesting stuff occurs starting at line #269 - we match the
> condition on the extension. Line #270 is the first action from this
> condition to add to the task list. Now, look closely at lines #271-273. On
> line #271 the dialplan parser sees the action - but notice the "INLINE"
> there. At line #272 you see the actual log that the action is being
> executed. On line #273 is the actual log application's output. So, this
> action was not added to the task list but rather executed right there. It
> was "executed inline." Note that at line #274 it goes back to dialplan
> parsing and adding items to the task list.
> Skip down to line #294 - there you'll see the items from the task list
> actually being executed. The two log applications that were not executed
> "inline" finally get executed there at the end.
> If you really want to see how this works try adding and removing the
> inline="true" on the various actions in this extension. Watch the logs.
> You'll see that anything with inline="true" gets executed long before the
> items that don't have inline="true".
