Description:I've found several undocumented variables in Asterisk source code. This patch rearranges README.variables and adds quite a lot of variables.

Some of them have either ??? or simply no explanation. Please help me explain these!

If you're doing that extreme of updates, you should probably update (and test) all the examples with app(data,args) format instead of app,data|args format.

You might want to check out a fresh copy of CVS.  Some of the variables in here are not correct; for example, AUTH_MAILBOX, not VM_AUTH_MAILBOX.

Also, you need to additionally specify which variables are 1) not settable, 2) read by, but not set by, a channel, or 3) Set by, but not read by, a channel (i.e. changing the variable does not change the behavior of the channel).

+${FAXEXTEN} ????
^^^^  The extension dialed before we were sent to the 'fax' extension.

+${ANI2} ????
^^^^  The ANI2 Code provided by the network on the incoming call.  (ie, Code 29 identifies call as a Prison/Inmate Call)

twisted: Thank you for contributing!
Corydon76: I will continue checking those issues later, this time I'm merely moving the list to the end and try to make the list in the current format more complete than before. Thank you for the corrections.

markster: Can you please help me by explaining the OSP and ZAP variables that lack explanation?

I also note that you haven't gotten all the variables, either.  CALLEDTON is the type of number (i.e. 0=unknown, 1=international, 2=domestic, 3=net_specific, 4=subscriber, 6=abbreviated, 7=reserved) for an incoming PRI EXTEN.

Corydon76: Thank you.

Still missing explanations in these categories:
* Chanisavail()
* Some ZAP variables
* OSP variables

...lack of interest obviously.
