Faxing in OS X using Applescript from Filemaker
Authored by: phowson on Feb 21, '04 06:58:05PM
Okay, so assuming we are doing this from within filemaker and we use values from the record to populate the following varialble for the do Applescript command:
number = the number of the person to whom we want to send the fax
PathToFile = path to the .ps file in the cue

It would look something like this:
lp -d Internal_Modem -o phone=number PathToFile

My questions are:

How do we generate the .ps file?
Could the same thing apply to generrating a PDF?
