Faxing with perl

aseidas has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello all, I am trying to come up with a solution to fax plain text that has been converted to a PDF. I would like to get rid of a proprietary faxing solution that we are currently using and rely on just Perl (or other open applications if need be). I am thinking I will have to pass the converted PDF to pdf2ps then onto something like hylafax to achieve this. I would like to be able to do it all through perl without duct taping a bunch of apps together to achieve the desired result. Has anyone had any experience with something like this? Any suggestions would be greatly desired and appreciated. Thanks, Aseidas

    Here's a simple little script that might get you going with ideas. <html> url link here </html> It's a script to fax web pages thru some German server. You might be able to convert the pdf to html and use the script to send. I only glanced at it.
