-.SH DESCRIPTION
-\fBasterisk\fR is a full-featured telephony server which
-provides Private Branch eXchange (PBX), Interactive Voice Response (IVR),
-Automated Call Distribution (ACD), Voice over IP (VoIP) gatewaying, 
-Conferencing, and a plethora of other telephony applications to a broad
-range of telephony devices including packet voice (SIP, IAX2, MGCP, Skinny,
-H.323, Unistim) devices (both endpoints and proxies), as well as traditional TDM
-hardware including T1, E1, ISDN PRI, GR-303, RBS, Loopstart, Groundstart,
-ISDN BRI and many more.
-.PP
-At start, Asterisk reads the /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf main configuration
-file and locates the rest of the configuration files from the configuration
-in that file. The -C option specifies an alternate main configuration file.
-Virtually all aspects of the operation of asterisk's configuration files
-can be found in the sample configuration files. The format for those files
-is generally beyond the scope of this man page.
-.PP
-When running with \fB-c\fR, \fB-r\fR or \fB-R\fR
-options, Asterisk supplies a powerful command line, including command
-completion, which may be used to monitors its status, perform a variety
-of administrative actions and even explore the applications that are
-currently loaded into the system.
-.PP
-Asterisk is a trademark of Digium, Inc.
-.SH OPTIONS
-.TP 
--B
-Force the background of the terminal to be black, in order for
-terminal colors to show up properly.
-.TP 
--C \fIfile\fR
-Use \*(T<\fIfile\fR\*(T> as master configuration file
-instead of the default, /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf
-.TP 
--c
-Provide a control console on the calling terminal.
-Specifying this option implies \fB-f\fR and will cause
-asterisk to no longer fork or detach from the controlling terminal.
-.TP 
--d
-Enable extra debugging statements.
-
-Note: This always sets the debug level in the asterisk process,
-even if it is running in the background. This may affect the size
-of your log files, if the debug level is specified in logger.conf.
-.TP 
--e \fImemory\fR
-Limit the generation of new channels when the amount of free memory has decreased to under \fImemory\fR megabytes.
-.TP 
--f
-Do not fork or detach from controlling terminal. Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-F\fR on the command line.
-.TP 
--F
-Always fork and detach from controlling terminal. Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-f\fR on the command line.
-.TP 
--g
-Remove resource limit on core size, thus forcing Asterisk to dump
-core in the unlikely event of a segmentation fault or abort signal.
-\fBNOTE:\fR in some cases this may be incompatible
-with the \fB-U\fR or \fB-G\fR flags.
-.TP 
--G \fIgroup\fR
-Run as group \fIgroup\fR instead of the
-calling group. \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work
-to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write
-the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm
-socket, the asterisk database, etc.
-.TP 
--h
-Provide brief summary of command line arguments and terminate.
-.TP 
--i
-Prompt user to intialize any encrypted private keys for IAX2
-secure authentication during startup.
-.TP 
--I
-Enable internal timing if DAHDI timing is available.
-The default behaviour is that outbound packets are phase locked
-to inbound packets. Enabling this switch causes them to be
-locked to the internal DAHDI timer instead.
-.TP 
--L \fIloadaverage\fR
-Limits the maximum load average before rejecting new calls. This can
-be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating
-too many simultaneous calls.
-.TP 
--m
-Temporarily mutes output to the console and logs. To return to normal,
-use \fBlogger mute\fR.
-.TP 
--M \fIvalue\fR
-Limits the maximum number of calls to the specified value. This can
-be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating
-too many simultaneous calls.
-.TP 
--n
-Disable ANSI colors even on terminals capable of displaying them.
-.TP 
--p
-If supported by the operating system (and executing as root),
-attempt to run with realtime priority for increased performance and
-responsiveness within the Asterisk process, at the expense of other
-programs running on the same machine.
-
-Note: \fBastcanary\fR will run concurrently with
-\fBasterisk\fR. If \fBastcanary\fR stops
-running or is killed, \fBasterisk\fR will slow down to
-normal process priority, to avoid locking up the machine.
-.TP 
--q
-Reduce default console output when running in conjunction with
-console mode (\fB-c\fR).
-.TP 
--r
-Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect
-to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface
-for controlling it.
-.TP 
--R
-Much like \fB-r\fR. Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect
-to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface
-for controlling it. Additionally, if connection to the Asterisk 
-process is lost, attempt to reconnect for as long as 30 seconds.
-.TP 
--s \fIsocket file name\fR
-In combination with \fB-r\fR, connect directly to a specified
-Asterisk server socket.
-.TP 
--t
-When recording files, write them first into a temporary holding directory, 
-then move them into the final location when done.
-.TP 
--T
-Add timestamp to all non-command related output going to the console
-when running with verbose and/or logging to the console.
-.TP 
--U \fIuser\fR
-Run as user \fIuser\fR instead of the
-calling user. \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work
-to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write
-the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm
-socket, the asterisk database, etc.
-.TP 
--v
-Increase the level of verboseness on the console. The more times
-\fB-v\fR is specified, the more verbose the output is.
-Specifying this option implies \fB-f\fR and will cause
-asterisk to no longer fork or detach from the controlling terminal.
-This option may also be used in conjunction with \fB-r\fR
-and \fB-R\fR.
-
-Note: This always sets the verbose level in the asterisk process,
-even if it is running in the background. This will affect the size
-of your log files.
-.TP 
--V
-Display version information and exit immediately.
-.TP 
--W
-Display colored terminal text as if the background were white
-or otherwise light in color. Normally, terminal text is displayed
-as if the background were black or otherwise dark in color.
-.TP 
--x \fIcommand\fR
-Connect to a running Asterisk process and execute a command on
-a command line, passing any output through to standard out and
-then terminating when the command execution completes. Implies
-\fB-r\fR when \fB-R\fR is not explicitly
-supplied.
-.TP 
--X
-Enables executing of includes via \fB#exec\fR directive.
-This can be useful if You want to do \fB#exec\fR inside
-\*(T<\fIasterisk.conf\fR\*(T>

+.SH "OPTIONS" 
+ 
+.PP 
+Running Asterisk starts the asterisk daemon (optionally running it 
+in the foreground). However running it with \fB-r\fP or 
+\fB-R\fP connects to an existing Asterisk instance through 
+a remote console. 
+ 
+.IP "\-B" 10 
+Force the background of the terminal to be black, in order for 
+terminal colors to show up properly. Equivalent to 
+\fBforceblackbackground = yes\fP in 
+\fBasterisk.conf\fP. See also 
+\fB-n\fP and \fB-W\fP. 
+ 
+.IP "\-C \fIfile\fR" 10 
+Use \fBfile\fP as master configuration file 
+instead of the default, /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf 
+ 
+.IP "\-c" 10 
+Provide a control console on the calling terminal. The 
+console is similar to the remote console provided by 
+\fB-r\fP. Specifying this option implies  
+\fB-f\fR and will cause asterisk to no longer  
+fork or detach from the controlling terminal. Equivalent  
+to \fBconsole = yes\fP in \fBasterisk.conf\fP. 
+ 
+.IP "\-d" 10 
+Enable extra debugging statements. This parameter may be used several 
+times, and each increases the debug level.  Equivalent to \fBdebug = \fInum\fR\fP       in \fBasterisk.conf\fP to explicitly set the initian debug 
+level to \fInum\fR. When given at startup, this 
+option also implies \fB-f\fP (no forking). However when 
+connecting to an existing Asterisk instance (\fB-r\fP or 
+\fB-R\fP), it may only increase the debug level. 
+ 
+.IP "\-e \fImemory\fR" 10

+ 
+.IP "\-f" 10 
+Do not fork or detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any 
+preceding specification of \fB-F\fR on the command line. 
+Equivalent to \fBnofork = yes\fP in \fBasterisk.conf\fP. 
+See also \fB-c\fP. 
+ 
+.IP "\-F" 10 
+Always fork and detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any 
+preceding specification of \fB-f\fR on the command line. 
+May also be used to prevent \fB-d\fP and \fB-v\fP to imply

+  <title>DESCRIPTION</title>
+  <para>
+   <command>asterisk</command> is a full-featured telephony server which
+   provides Private Branch eXchange (PBX), Interactive Voice Response (IVR),
+   Automated Call Distribution (ACD), Voice over IP (VoIP) gatewaying, 
+   Conferencing, and a plethora of other telephony applications to a broad
+   range of telephony devices including packet voice (SIP, IAX2, MGCP, Skinny,
+   H.323, Unistim) devices (both endpoints and proxies), as well as traditional TDM
+   hardware including T1, E1, ISDN PRI, GR-303, RBS, Loopstart, Groundstart,
+   ISDN BRI and many more.
+  </para>
+  <para>
+   At start, Asterisk reads the /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf main configuration
+   file and locates the rest of the configuration files from the configuration
+   in that file. The -C option specifies an alternate main configuration file.
+   Virtually all aspects of the operation of asterisk's configuration files
+   can be found in the sample configuration files.  The format for those files
+   is generally beyond the scope of this man page.
+  </para>
+  <para>
+   When running with <command>-c</command>, <command>-r</command> or <command>-R</command>
+   options, Asterisk supplies a powerful command line, including command
+   completion, which may be used to monitors its status, perform a variety
+   of administrative actions and even explore the applications that are
+   currently loaded into the system.

+  <title>OPTIONS</title>
+  <para>
+   Running Asterisk starts the asterisk daemon (optionally running it

+   a remote console.
