    Hi all,

    I've got some information in MySQL that I manage using php. In the future I might need to disseminate some of the information via faxes. Generally speaking would php be of any help in this? If so how?

    If php is of no use then I will have to have another scripting language (perhaps Tcl or perl), to manipulate the MySQL data to make it out (via a fax server most likely).

    If anyone has any experience in doing this sort of thing, what language or applications are best. My preference is open-source of course. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Marlow

    (PS. If this doesn't belong here I'm sorry. Don't flame me too badly, I couldn't think of a better place. Just tell me where to go--Literally--but nicely.)

    Marlow,

    I did a search on www.hotscripts.com for php and fax. It returned this:

    Don't know whether it will suit your needs or not.
    Please don't PM me with questions.
    Use the forums, that is what they are here for.

    Thanks Freddy!

    At least I know it can be done (how easily is another matter). I'll be checking it out. Stay tuned.
