I'm pretty sure HylaFAX does COMPRESSED. I recall adding compression at

ok. I'll check out your CVS.

same here. I mean I have an FTP protocol implementation in Java object
form. I do not have a GUI or command-line program "user-agent". I have
very simple test-case type command line programs to test my HylaFAX
My classes have been pretty extensively tested against HylaFAX server
but I'm not aware of many FTP-only users. Just today I was contacted by
someone claiming he uses my classes to send over 3000 FAXes per day
without problems. At a past contract, an intern was paid to make the
FTP portion 'speak' with an IBM mainframe FTP server.
I don't recall if we've used BLOCK yet.
We should compare notes and I'll contribute what I can. A month or so
ago I checked out CVS and started to look at patching Classpath. What
The hold-up for me patching Classpath was that I didn't quite know how
to test it. I currently use non-free JDKs from Sun & IBM and am not in
the position to sink a lot of time into getting a free JDK working. Is
there an easy way to test a custom build of Classpath? "easy" for me
would be defined as either using Sun or IBMs JDK *or* a GCJ from Debian.
