[App_rpt-users] DTMF codes to activate function

Its not a bug. Its not a shortcomming. Its a well-defined lookup table, concisely stated. If you specify a 2 digit function, thats it. no more functions with 3 or more digits
starting with the same 2 digits as the 2 digit function.

I found that doing this helps:

941 = cop,something
942 = cop,something else
943 = cop,foo
94 = cop,do something now

Just as a heads up to anyone new reading this and learning about app_rpt and also as a question to the more experienced node owners out there, I have noticed a little niggle with the DTMF tone sequences used to activate functions on app_rpt.

Here's the scenario:
In my rpt.conf I have a function:

94 = cop,something or other
All is fine until I try and add a command 941 to do something else. 

The new code wont work and app_rpt seems to ignore the extra digit on the end and just activates the function that is associated with the code 94.

I'm not sure if this is really a bug or not but it certainly had me teased for a good few hours recently when I was adding some new functions to my node. 

I was expecting code 941 to work but it just wasnt - I was testing a new feature which had been added and I wasnt sure if I had busted the feature or something else had gone wrong! 

I changed the code to 95 and all worked as expected!
Just something to be aware of really I guess unless its an easy fix for the app?
