|Summary:||ASTERISK-00271: Suggestion: Standardize parameter passing and config file parsing|
|Date Opened:||2003-09-14 13:58:35||Date Closed:||2011-06-07 14:10:33|
|Description:||In working on several applications, I have noticed there's a fair amount of heavy lifting regarding parsing of parameters and config files; all of it is pretty much based on simple pointer manipulation, strcpy/strchr, and is fairly unforgiving (using ',' instead of '|' as a delimiter will fail, etc).|
Suggest that a simple library of parameter parsing routines (a la getopt) and a config file parsing mechanism be used to standardize behavior across all applications, reduce chances for bogus pointer references (*NULL), and the like.

Going to close this in favor of the options in bug 566 Dave can you post on the other bug/feature ticket?
