Stanza

A stanza is a block of text in a configuration file.

Stanzas are used in the rpt.conf, extensions.conf, and iax.conf files. Stanzas in extensions.conf are also known as a context.

A stanza has a section header enclosed in left and right braces and one or more key=value pairs. The stanza contains all key=value pairs and continues until the next section header in the configuration file
