(DataFlex) Interfax -- Fax a Single Document

Demonstrates how to use the REST API to fax a single document using interfax.net. See Send fax for more information.

This example will send a POST with these potential query params:

POST /outbound/faxes?faxNumber={faxnumber}[&contact={string}&postponeTime={datetime}
&retriesToPerform={number}&csid={string}&pageHeader={string}&reference={string}
&replyAddress={email}&pageSize={a4|letter|legal|b4}&fitToPage={scale|noscale}
&pageOrientation={portrait|landscape}&resolution={fine|standard}&rendering={greyscale|bw}]
The HTTP POST request to be sent will look like this:
POST /outbound/faxes?faxNumber={faxnumber}&... HTTP/1.1
Host: rest.interfax.net
Authorization: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ==
Content-Type: application/msword
 
{binary content goes here}
Note: The Content-Type header field should match type type of document. For example, use "application/pdf" to fax a PDF. To find out what content-type header field values should be used, Google "MIME content type for XYZ" where XYZ describes the type of document. For example, one might Google "MIME content type for Excel xls", and the answer would be "application/vnd.ms-excel".
