Hi all,

OpenSIPS trunk (future 1.9) just got better with some awesome script 

1) *Flags with name*, thanks to Liviu  Chircu
Message, script and branch flags have now alphanumerical names, instead 
of numerical ID (as so far). Now you can simply do:
The migration to named flags affects all flag related functions and the 
module parameters used for defining flags (like flag to enable sip 
tracing, etc).
This change is 100% backward compatible, but you will get some warning 
about deprecation of the ID based flags.

2) *Script tracing*, also thanks to Liviu Chircu
With script tracing, you can better understand the flow of execution in 
the OpenSIPS script. Moreover, you can also trace the values of 
pseudo-variables, as script execution progresses.
The blocks of the script where script tracing is enabled will print a 
line for each individual action that is done (e.g. assignments, 
conditional tests, module functions, core functions, etc.). Multiple 
pseudo-variables can be monitored by specifying a pv_format string (e.g. 
"$ru---$avp(var1)"). The current value of the format will be printed 
along with each line.
Script tracing can be enabled with: script_trace(log_level, 
pv_format_string[, info_string])
     [line 578][me][module consume_credentials] -> (INVITE from , ruri=sip:111111 at opensips.org)
     [line 581][me][core setsflag] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:111111 at opensips.org)
     [line 583][me][assign equal] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:111111 at opensips.org)
     [line 592][me][core if] -> (INVITE from , 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)
     [line 585][me][module is_avp_set] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)
     [line 589][me][core if] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)
     [line 586][me][module is_method] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)
     [line 587][me][module trace_dialog] -> (INVITE, 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)
     [line 590][me][core setflag] -> (INVITE from, 
ruri=sip:tester at opensips.org)

3) *Routes with parameters*, thanks to Razvan Crainea
When calling a script route, some extra parameters can be attached 
(example: route(ROUTE_NAME, 1);), that can be later retrieved from 
within the route using the a type of '$param' pseudo variable.
You can push up to 7 parameters which can be strings, numbers or variables.

   route[tester] {
       if ($param(1) > $param(2) )
         xlog("test $param(3) failed \n");

   route(tester, $avp(calls), 10, "max call limit");

I hope you will enjoy these new goodies, feedback is appreciated.
