what is % in voice translation rules?

Hi all,

I have seen "%" sign used in IOS voice translation rules, but I can't find it in any translation rule config guides. What does it mean and how to use it?

thanks

Re: what is % in voice translation rules?

I found this guide which mentioned the "%" wild-card.  It means anything starting with that string of digits.  So "120%" would be any number starting with "120".

The guide above is about the BTS product, not IOS.

To my knowledge, % is not used in translation rules.

Just to add to Paolo's note


Note Wildcard symbols such as the period (.), asterisk (*), percent sign (%), plus sign (+), and question mark (?) are not valid in translation rules. The router simply ignores these symbols when converting a number if they are used in a translation rule.

Re: what is % in voice translation rules?

appreciate your link and quote, but I got this doc from Cisco:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk652/tk90/technologies_tech_note09186a0080325e8e.shtml

Wildcard

Definition

.

Any single digit

0 to 9,*,#

Any specific character

[0-9]

Any range or sequence of characters

*

Modifier—match none or more occurrences

+

Modifier—match one or more occurrences

?

Modifier—match none or one occurrence

it has no reference to %, but it does say * is valid, however from Javalenc's link, * is invalid??!! same with the period "."   Is this because one is voice translation rule and the other is translation rule? I thought they do the same job, just voice translation rule is newer feature.

just found another doc that has % in translation rules ( towards the end of it):

Even Cisco documents may contain errors.

You can use the feedback form on the left to notify Cisco and have it corrected.
