Hi Chris,

Try this. This works with Linux RH 6.0 using PBMPLUS. Should work with other UNIX 
flavors. Call this from your pqact.conf with an "EXEC" to this script, like:

DIFAX   ^(2003).*       EXEC /home/scripts/convert_difax \1

#!/bin/sh
#
# Script to print the DIFAX charts.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/SUNWspro/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/ucblib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
dt=`/bin/date -u +%y%m%d`
