supported). It generates both

Also try to detect modules. Unloads all zaptel modules and loads them
one by one. Considers a module useful if it loaded successfully and if
loading it has generated at least one zapata channel.
The list of detected modules is written as the value of
i . This is mostly for the caller-id values. Crude, but may be good enough.
Disable writing FXS extensions in zapata.conf
Only list deceted channels and their signalling. Don't write
configuration files. Note, however that
will still rewrite the modules line in
with a list of our modules, thereby
triggers their loading via modprobe on the next boot.
This triggers the

Don't restart asterisk even if it was stopped using
Stop asterisk for the duration of the test. The detection will only
work if nobody uses the zaptel channels:
* To allow unloading of modules
* to allow reading configuration files.
This option tells the script to stop asterisk (if it was running) and to
try to start it after the end of the test.
Be verbose. lists the detected modules if
is used. Lists detected channls. In the end tries to connect to asterisk
to get a list of configured zaptel channels.

Look at the beginning of the script for a number of variables that can
be overriden through the configuraion file. Some variables can also be
overriden through the environment. The configuration file is sourced by
bash but for compatibility expected to have only 'var=VALUE' lines and
comments or empty lines.
The configuration will first be read from
if it exists, and
otherwise (But those file names may be overriden, see
below). Variables set in those files will override the default settings
and setting rom the environment.
The following variables may be set from the environment:
ZAPCONF_FILE, ZAPATA_FILE, ZAPTEL_BOOT_DEBIAN, ZAPTEL_BOOT_FEDORA,
The default country. Can be also overriden by the option -c
