CARRANZAFAX is a Linux based program that makes faxing quick and easy.  CARRANZAFAX is completely written in C programming language and utilizes the GTK libraries for C.  CARRANZAFAX is a front end program.  In other words, CARRANZAFAX provides the GUI for EFAX, a binary faxing utility.  EFAX is executed via command line and can be quite cumbersome to use.  For this reason, CARRANZAFAX is developed - to serve as an easy to use GUI for a command line program, EFAX.  EFAX is normally included in all major distributions of Linux.  More information about EFAX is provided through the manual pages:  "man fax" or "man efax".





Fax File Preparation


As was mentioned earlier, CARRANZAFAX is a front end GUI to another program, EFAX.  EFAX requires that all files to be foxed are in Post Script format.  Thus, all files  faxed must be converted to Post Script first before using CARRANZAFAX.  This can be done in any program of your choice:  Open Office, Star Office, K Office, Gimp, etc.  Once this is done, then launch CARRANZAFAX and the program will guide you through the file selection.  At this time a cover sheet must be prepared separately from the document to be faxed.  Therefore, two Post Script files must be created, one for the cover sheet and one for the document.
