1. Does HylaFAX support batch faxing in the same manner as VSI-FAX?
What I mean is, currently when I run a batch fax job from my
character based accounting system, I send all jobs to one big
file to be parsed by VSI-FAX based on embedded tags. The file is
parsed into many individual faxes and sent to all my different
clients. I just set my software to send the desired
tags/parameters I need, and VSI-FAX takes care of the rest…
I currently have my own little batch processing BASH script I wrote to
take care of all of this, because I didn’t seem to find what I was
looking for online… I found plenty about batch faxing the same
document to multiple different numbers, however that was NOT what I
was looking for… All documents differ and are sent to all different
It sounds like your definition of "batching" is like a fax-merge. Taking
a fax template, populating it automatically with information and faxing
the result. No, HylaFAX doesn't have anything like this natively... but
I'm guessing that it would be easy to script up.
2. And this brings me to my 2^nd question, does anyone know if
HylaFax plans to support PCL to FAX conversions, now that
Artiflex has released GhostPDL under the GPL as oppose to the
old APL they had the previous releases under? Is anyone
currently working on such a feature? Even Beta?
It is mostly in-place, and it wouldn't be extremely hard to get PCL
working, it's just that you're the first person to bring this up in a
very long time.
