1. Overview

   This module collects the core pseudo-variables that can be used in
   configuration file. They are listed in Dokuwiki:
   http://www.kamailio.org/dokuwiki/, in Pseudo-Variables section

2. Dependencies

   2.1. Kamailio Modules
   2.2. External Libraries or Applications

2.1. Kamailio Modules

   The following modules must be loaded before this module:
     * No dependencies on other Kamailio modules.

2.2. External Libraries or Applications

   The following libraries or applications must be installed before
   running Kamailio with this module loaded:
     * None.

3. Exported Parameters

   3.1. shvset (string)
   3.2. varset (string)
   3.3. avp_aliases (string)

3.1. shvset (string)

   Set the value of a shared variable ($shv(name)). The parameter can be
   set many times.

   The value of the parameter has the format: _name_ '=' _type_ ':'
   _value_
     * _name_: shared variable name
     * _type_: type of the value
          + “i”: integer value
          + “s”: string value
     * _value_: value to be set

   Default value is “NULL”.

   Example 1.1. shvset parameter usage
...
modparam("pv", "shvset", "debug=i:1")
modparam("pv", "shvset", "pstngw=s:sip:10.10.10.10")
...

3.2. varset (string)

   Set the value of a script variable ($var(name)). The parameter can be
   set many times.

   The value of the parameter has the format: _name_ '=' _type_ ':'
   _value_
     * _name_: shared variable name
     * _type_: type of the value
          + “i”: integer value
          + “s”: string value
     * _value_: value to be set

   Default value is “NULL”.

   Example 1.2. varset parameter usage
...
modparam("pv", "varset", "init=i:1")
modparam("pv", "varset", "gw=s:sip:11.11.11.11;transport=tcp")
...

3.3. avp_aliases (string)

   Define aliases for PV AVP names.

   Default value is NULL.

   Example 1.3. avp_aliases parameter usage
...
modparam("pv","avp_aliases","email=s:email_addr;tmp=i:100")
...

4. Exported Functions

   4.1. pv_isset(pvar)
   4.2. pv_unset(pvar)

4.1. pv_isset(pvar)

   Return true if a PV value is different than 'null'.

   Meaning of the parameters is as follows:
     * pvar - pvar identifier.

   This function can be used from ANY_ROUTE.

   Example 1.4. pv_isset usage
...
if(pv_isset("$avp("s:x")"))
{
    ...
}
...

4.2. pv_unset(pvar)

   Unset the value of the PV (e.g., delete AVP, set to null).

   Meaning of the parameters is as follows:
     * pvar - pvar identifier.

   This function can be used from ANY_ROUTE.

   Example 1.5. pv_unset usage
...
pv_unset("$avp("s:x")");
...

5. MI Commands

   5.1. shv_set
   5.2. shv_get

5.1. shv_set

   Set the value of a shared variable ($shv(name)).

   Parameters:
     * _name_: shared variable name
     * _type_: type of the value
          + “int”: integer value
          + “str”: string value
     * _value_: value to be set

   MI FIFO Command Format:
                :shv_set:_reply_fifo_file_

                _value_
                _empty_line_

   Example 1.6. shv_set usage
...
$ kamctl fifo shv_set debug int 0
...

5.2. shv_get

   Get the value of a shared variable ($shv(name)).

   Parameters:
     * _name_: shared variable name. If this parameter is missing, all
       shared variables are returned.

   MI FIFO Command Format:
                :shv_get:_reply_fifo_file_
                _name_
