Description:exten => 1,1,gotoif($[abc]?true:false); Will goto false
exten => 1,1,gotoif($[878]?true:false); Will goto true

I think that is wrong. This is what the file README.variables says:

"condition" is just a string. If the string is empty or "0", the condition
is considered to be false, if it's anything else, the condition is true.

$[] is arithmetic (or logical) evaluation.  Try $["abc" = "abc"] or just:

I tried this:

exten => 999,1,GotoIf(abc?a:b)
exten => 999,n(a),Noop(a)
exten => 999,n(b),Noop(b)

result: false and jumps to (b) - is that correct behaviour?
