HylaFAX tag line testing program


/usr/sbin/tagtest [ options ] input.tif


tagtest is a program for testing the “tag line” support in the HylaFAX server. tagtest takes a TIFF/F (TIFF Class F) file and generates a new TIFF/F file that is a copy of the input file, but with sample tag lines imaged across the top of each page. Options are provided for specifying  a tag line format string and a tag line font file. If neither are specified, then tagtest will use built-in defaults. tagtest is designed for testing tag line format strings and fonts before they are configured for use by the facsimile server.



Add the lines of the tagline to the image instead of replacing existing lines.


Place the tagline at the bottom of the image instead of at the top (currently functions with MMR images only).

-f file

Image the tag line format string using the Portable Compiled Font (PCF) in file. By default tagtest looks for the font file fixed.pcf.

-m format

Use format when imaging tag lines. If this option is not specified, then tagtest uses the format string “From %%n|%c|Page %%p of %%t”.

-l locale

Use locale as the locale setting for preparing the given format string.  For example, “en_US.UTF-8”.  If the string is encoded via UTF-8 then the correct setting of locale is requisite for proper decoding by the parser.  By default the environment settings are used.

-o file

Write output to file. By default output is written to the file t.tif.
