We investigate discrete light dynamics in the presence of a longitudinal defect of arbitrary extension, amplitude and position in a nonlinear waveguide array. We model and discuss the physics of the soliton-defect interaction, showing how to gain complete control over the system outcome for soliton-based data processing. We propose all-optical management in dye-doped liquid crystals.
