Thanks Greyman.  I appreciate it. What I'm actually looking for is how to do
special outbound calling handling with asterisk.  I don't want to actually
change the asterisk server itself.  I think I want to use AGI's ?  I'm not
certain, but I *think* so.  Basically I'm wanting to do the following:

1. Get data from mySQL database (I already have an example program for this)
2. make an outbound call (I already have an example with a simple 'call
3. detect human or answering machine (and update the db appropriately)
4. play an audio file (I have an example of this too).
5. Prompt the listener to record a response (I DON'T have an example of
6.  write the response to a WAV file so I can retrieve it via FTP.

I think that's about it.  Like I said, I have some sample code to get me
started, I was just wondering for a good starting place for scripting with

Hi David,

Don't worry it wasn't personal, the Asterisk-Dev list can be a brutal
place! Too many years and too much spam coupled with the standard low
grumpiness threshold of over-worked programmers.

The URL was a tongue-in-cheek way of saying the best way to get
started is to look at the Asterisk source code. A more useful URL is
http://www.asterisk.org/developers where you can find links to obtain
the source code and also some pointers on getting started with
Asterisk development.
