[Asterisk-Dev] How to pass a complex tone to Playtones

Is there an explanation of how extensions.conf is parsed?
I've just been trying to figure out how to pass a complex tone into
exten => 3,1,Playtones(400*33/400,0/200,400*33/400,0/2000)
(The * is something I'm working on)
The commas are treated as parameter separators. By the time the
argument gets to handle_playtones in res/res_indications.c, it looks
If I do:
exten => 3,1,Playtones,400*33/400,0/200,400*33/400,0/2000
Then handle_playtones only sees 400*33/400 - the rest is gone
exten => 3,1,Playtones("400*33/400,0/200,400*33/400,0/2000")
results in handle_playtones getting the whole contents of the
() including the quotes, which handles_playtones doesn't handle.
I eventually found that:
exten => 3,1,Playtones,"400*33/400,0/200,400*33/400,0/2000"
It all seems pretty inconsistent to me. Perhaps it shows that I
really don't understand how extensions.conf is parsed...
(The *, by the way, gets the one tone modulating the other. Needed to
match some countries' indications. Patch coming)
