 Sending a fax from inside TP7 (Class 1 Support)


I am interested in controlling a fax modem to send a fax to a fax machine
from a program written in TP7.

I know that I could call a pre-existing command line driven program which
does this but I would like to have source code to allow me to port to
different OSs and to allow me to more tightly integrate the faxing feature
into my program.

I have been able to find a program with source which does what I want but it
only works with Class 2 or 2.0 fax modems. I would like something which
could also work with Class 1 fax modems as my development machines only has
a Class One Fax modem and it seems quite a lot of 56k fax modems don't
support Class 2.

Searching the net hasn't turned up much at all in any language, except for
the gettty-sendfax package for Linux. It's written in C however and I
haven't been able to get it to work under DOS due to differences in the
architecture. Also I've found stuff for windows but this doesn't help as I'm
not creating a windows based program.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to send a fax via a fax modem from a TP7
program? There must be someone who has done this / wanted to do this before.

I would just use the code I've found for Class 2 fax modems but as I said
there are a lot of modems which don't support it. I've looked at the
definitions of the Class 1 and Class 2 specs but they don't mean a thing to
me :-(

Since there are a lot of freeware / shareware DOS based fax sending packages
available there must be somewhere where I can find good implementation
