How To Fax Using Fax★Star
To fax a document, simply embed Fax★Star commands into a text document. These commands tell Fax★Star where to send the fax, what forms to attach, who to send a confirmation message to, etc. There are over 150 Fax★Star commands available for you to use. Here is an example with just a few commands. All fax commands start with ** (pronounced star star). On the left is a text document with embedded ** commands. On the right is the document after it is converted to a fax by Fax★Star.
Fax★Star sends a fax to the number specified after **FAX. The logo specified by **LOGO is added to the top of the fax. The text in the document is merged with the form specified by **FORM. All text within the document remains as is, except the ** fax commands which are automatically removed. Finally, **END indicates to Fax★Star the end of a fax.
