This is a test GPFax 2.350 Class 2 update patch.

It fixes a couple of problems such as the Leap Year bug,
adds better support for Cybergraphics and RTG systems and
adds the ability to run with Class 2.0 modems. Note that I
have found a number of inconsistancies when using various Class 2.0
modems from USR. If the 2.0 version does not function well,
please revert to using the Class 1 verson. There is very little
difference in actuality. Class 2 is just a superset of Class 1.


Notes for GPFax Class 2/2.0 version 2.350


All previous tooltypes and CLI codes are still supported plus the following


CLI operation

run gpfax   -MUSR2.0
      -KCLASS2.0  KCLASS2
      -H7WIRE or -HXONXOFF

   
TOOLTYPE ICON

   MODEMTYPE=USR2.0
   FAXCLASS = CLASS2.0  or CLASS2
   HANDSHAKE=7WIRE or XONXOFF


Only the MODEMTYPE command is needed if used with USR modems.

If you use the MODEMTYPE or -M , then this will override the -K -H commands.
Be careful of the order in which the program reads the settings. For example,
putting -M AFTER -K will cause the faxclass setting to be overridden.




Known Problems
--------------

With the USR modems,

1. the class 2.0 has some problems when sending. The modem
generates non-reproducable responses at certain times and will appear to have
sent the page when actuall it has sent absolutely nothing.  

2. USR  modems report 'strange' error in 2/10 attempts for no apparent
   reasons.


With Zyxel modems

   Class 2.0 works very quite well but cannot send to Supra modems.
   Fax received by Supra is garbled.



-----------------------------------------------------------------

To update your original program.

ENSURE YOU ARE WORKING WITH A COPY OF YOUR ORIGINAL PROGRAM.


To apply the patch, execute the following line from the CLI

   cd RAM:

   copy GPFAX:GPFax RAM:old

   spatch -oGPFax.350 -pG2347c2.pch old

This will create the new version of GPFax 2.350 as file GPFax.2350. 
Then copy the new file to your GPFAX: directory as GPFax.

   rename GPFax:GPFax GPFax:GPfax.2347

   copy ram:GPFax.350 GPFax:GPFax  clone
