The ZSUBMIT program
The ZSUBMIT program is a part of the API toolkit which lets DOS, mini and mainframe programs send faxes and text messages by creating text files in a shared directory on a file server. For example, faxing purchase orders or invoices usually only requires adjusting an accounts packages report writer.
A text file needs a few lines added to give the fax/mobile number and message options. Logos and signatures can be included and the text may be merged onto a multi-page form using the letterhead feature in Zetafax. This approach gives results rapidly.
This section introduces and explains in depth the format of submit files required by the ZSUBMIT program. Typically, this section can be used as a reference for both users of ZSUBMIT and the COM and C language APIs. Finally, there are some example SUBMIT files giving instances of its use.
