grandcentral callout w/ asterisk

is there a way to have asterisk run the perl script at the following url ( Call w/o Adding Contact) when you pick up the phone and dial a number? (example: "/bin/ 1234567890")

I am using FreePBX to manage asterisk

I'm not familiar with Grandcentral, so I'm not quite sure what the script is doing, or what functionality you are looking for. You can make Asterisk do pretty much anything via the dialplan file extensions.conf, in /etc/asterisk. For example, to run a script before (or instead of) dialing you could use something like this:

exten => _X.,1,System(/home/me/
exten => _X.,2,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN},300,r)
exten => _X.,3,Hangup()

Not sure how this squares with FreePBX, which I'm guessing puts some sort of GUI between you and the config files.
