Re: [hylafax-users] Converting files to PS

First a word of warning: 
I have not tested most of the following suggestions.

For HylaFAX you usually don't need to convert pdf files to Postscript, else
you can use pdftops.

For many of these formats you can possibly use OpenOffice to convert them to
PDF, see for a start:

> WinFax .fxr/.fxs/frd

Don't know about these formats.

For these formats you can use "convert" from ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick.

There are scripts like "html2ps" with probably mixed results. Maybe there is
also a way to use a Linux browser like Firefox or Konqueror for batch
printing. Alternatively you can also use OpenOffice.
