|Description:||I'm not sure if this was changed intentionally or unintentionally, or perhaps it never existed, but certain legacy documentation seems to reference W as a 1 second wait in addition to w as a 500ms wait. This is common in a lot of legacy IVR and telephony systems. This minor patch adds or re-adds W.|

Add 'W' as 1 second wait, to complement w as 500ms wait.

Can you provide links to any documentation or references in regards to the use of the W digit in older systems? Also can you verify that your patch works against trunk?

It seems that I was mistaken about this being a part of Asterisk, but many older telephony systems seem to use W and w, including our Dialogic based systems, FreeSWITCH, and others. So just for the sake of compatibility with dial strings from other sources, I would at least like to submit this as a feature request. http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Misc._Dialplan_Tools_send_dtmf
