Re: [hylafax-users] Information on Job Control
I got it and it looks like it will do what I want. I do have one more
question though. Is job control only called once when the job is
queued or is it called during a re-queued as well? Having it called
during a re-queue would be handy.

I've not found much information about writing job control files.
There are a few examples but not much in the way of what all of the

JobControl is simply "program" that is run. faxq read's the output of
the program, in a "param: value" format, and acts on them.
The params are described in the jobcontrol manpage. As mentioned
man page, any option not listed there is passed directly to the
program with the -c "param:value", allowing you to driectly control
faxsend options (like localidentifier, etc) with jobcontl.
I've put a few simple examples up:
These samples show how to "get" information about a job from the
and how to set "params" that you can control.. These are all basic
shell scripts, but there is nothing that makes jobcontrol have to be a
shell script. You could use perl, python, php, C/C++, asm, java, etc.
What specifically are you looking for?
