Asterisk cmd Hangup
Description:This application hangs up the calling channel unconditionally and returns -1. If a causecode is given the channel's hangup cause is set to the given value.
For SIP ConnectionsIt is possible to send different reply errors ("404 Not found", "484 Address incomplete" etc.) by setting <causecode> to one of the values defined by RFC 3398 - page 24.
The <causecode> parameter is the ISDN causecode and not the SIP response code. For example, to hang up a call with the SIP cause 503, the dialplan must execute hangup(42).
When call is hang up, Asterisk sends the extra SIP header "X-Asterisk-HangupCauseCode" in in the BYE message.
For PRI Connections: Setting a PRI_CAUSE

; invalid extension dialed - PRI_CAUSE=unallocated number
exten => i,2,Hangup ; Outdated: Asterisk 1.4 allows to transmit the cause code as argument to Hangup()

"The number you have dialed has been disconnected ..."
