/var/spool/hylafax/bin/mkcover qfile template result


bin/mkcover is the command invoked by the facsimile server when a continuation cover page is required for an outbound job that is about to be retried. It generates a single \*(Ps\(rg page that is imaged according to the remote capabilities and transmitted as the cover page. The arguments are:


the job description file for the outbound job.


the cover page template file, as used by the faxcover(1) program.


the filename where the resultant \*(Ps document should be written.

The default mkcover command is a shell script that uses awk(1) to parse the job description file and generate the cover page document. The template file may be optionally compressed with compress(1), pack(1), or gzip(1); the filename suffix is used to decide whether or not the template file contains compressed data.
