  The problem is when you say "there is no documentation saying how to do what I want", that really comes across as "how to implement Christian Salways configuration"

  That's not an "exec" module.  That's a dynamic expansion.

   Nothing in the documentation says that this kind of thing is possible.  The "man unlang" documentation is very clear on the format of the configuration files.  The hundreds of examples show nothing like what you're doing here.

  You can't just *invent* syntax and expect it to work.

  Because it isn't allowed.  The documentation should be VERY clear on what is allowed.

  This shouldn't be difficult.  When I say "use the exec module", you should already understand what a "module" is, and where it's configured.  The documentation makes this abundantly clear.

  See the "mods-available" directory.  And perhaps unsurprisingly, there's a file called "exec".  Which describes what the "exec" module is, and how to use it.

  This is really a major problem.  If you've read the docs and still aren't clear what a "module" is, or where the module configuration lives, then that's a problem which is difficult for me to solve.
