/usr/local/bin/tiff2pdf.  see man tiff2pdf for details.  This only
creates a new pdf file, leaving the tiff intact.

guys, i need some pointers...

currently, received faxes appear in our /var/spool/hylafax/recvd in tiff
format. how i do modify the facrcvd script so that faxes are kept in
both  tif and pdf format?

thanx. raz. hylafax+ 5.2.

Just put something like:

case "${ARCHIVE_FAX}" in "always")
${TIFF2PDF} -o archive/$FILENAME.pdf -pA4 ${FILE};;

in your faxrcvd script. Be aware to rename the script to
faxrcvd-whatever and put:

FaxRcvdCmd: bin/faxrcvd-whatever

in your modem config file, e.g. something like etc/config.cuad4. This
prevents the script from being overwritten upon a HylaFAX update.

On request I can send you my faxrcvd script, but it is quite adapted to
my needs and UNIX FreeBSD-flavour. Although if you are skilled enough
you can re-adapt it, or read and copy from it for your needs.
