Configuration files have a simple structure consisting of two parts:# stanzas, key/value pairs and comments. A stanza is a section block of the config text within a configuration file. It starts with a name (or number) surrounded by square brackets. A stanza is also called on a context in Asterisk PBX terminology. Stanzas contain one or more ker/valus pairsline by itself. A config file Configuration files will have one or more stanzastanzas. Each stanza continues until the next stanza or end of file.# Key/value pairs which set various values such as the ID of the node<pre>[this is a stanza]...
[this is another stanza]...</pre> Stanzas contain one or more ker/value pairs. Key/value pairs set various values within each stanza.<pre>myname=timothy ; There are some who call me Tim?</pre> Config file comments are preceded with a semicolon. In this example of two nodes the stanza is the node number and the key/value pairs set the CW ID and the ID timer: <pre>[1998]idrecording = |iW1ABCidtime = 540000 ; 9 minutes [1999]idrecording = |iW1XYZidtime = 540000 </pre> ==Settings to name other Stanzas==Some key=value pairs point to other stanzas. This allows nodes on the same server to have the same settings (without duplicate entries) or different settings in some cases. For examplethe phone patch command may be *6 on one node, yet *61 on another. For example:<pre>[1000]functions=functionsVHF [1001]functions=functionsVHF ;same functions as node 1000 [1002]functions=functionsUHF [functionsVHF]; Two meter Autopatch up is *66=autopatchup,noct=1,farenddisconnect=1,dialtime=20000 0=autopatchdn ; Autopatch down [functionsUHF]; 440 Autopatch up is *6161=autopatchup,noct=1,farenddisconnect=1,dialtime=20000 ; Autopatch up0=autopatchdn ; Autopatch down</pre> ==Named Stanzas in rpt.conf==* controlstates=* functions=* link_functions=* macro=* phone_functions=* telemetry=* wait_times= ''Note:'' A stanza is also called a context in Asterisk PBX terminology,particularly related to the dialplan.[[Category: Node Configuration]]
