I am currently using mgetty+sendfax-1.0.0 in order to handle incoming
faxes. The software works fine except I have one problem. It is with
regards to saving multiple page faxes to one file.
The current setup that I have does the following...
Incoming faxes come in as g3 format files, one file per faxed page.
the g3topbm conversion takes place.
the pnmtops conversion takes place.
I then use distilld from a Solaris box to convert the PostScript files to
portable document format (PDF) files that can be viewed with Acrobat
Reader. The Solaris box shares a few directories with my Linux box
through NFS to perform the distillation process.
The problem is that I would like for a multiple page fax to show up only
as a single PDF file. Currently, each page shows up as a seperate PDF
The best thing would be to find a tool that merges multiple PostScript
files into one, since all the processes can be automated.
Does anyone know if there is a tool to merge PostScript files? If so,
where is this tool available?
Thanks in advance,
