|-n||Tells faxspool to use normal resolution (as opposed to the default, fine resolution) both when converting files to G3 format and when transmitting (no effect on pbm files)|
|-h <text file>|
|Use <text file> for the FAX header line(s). The default format file for faxspool is /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/faxheader. - means no header line.|
|-q||do not output progress messages (file ... is format ..., spooling to ...). Error messages will be seen anyway.|
|-f <mail address>|
|Use the address given for the status mail that faxrunq(1) sends after completing / dequeueing the request. If no mail address is specified, the requesting user (on the local machine) gets the mail.|
|-u <user name>|
|Do not use the current user ID for authentication purposes but the user name specified. Since this can lead to easy breach of security, only "trusted" users may use this flag. Currently, those users are "root", "lp" and "daemon" (hardwired into the code). Note: the status mail will still go to the user running faxspool(1) unless changed with "-f".|
|Verbose form of the faxs destination. Used only for informational purposes, that is, faxq(1) will show it, faxrunq(1) will put it into the return mail ("Subject: your fax to ..."), and a @D@ in the page header will be replaced by it.|
|Full name or similar description of the sending user (if not specified, the full name field from /etc/passwd will be used). Used only for informational purposes, that is, faxspool(1) will substitute a @N@ in the page header file with it, and it will be passed to the cover page program (if used) as <sender-NAME>.|
|Sets the priority of the fax in the queue. 9 is highest (meaning: faxes get sent out first), 1 is lowest. If nothing is specified, a default value of 5 is used. Right now, only faxrunqd understands priority, faxrunq will silently ignore it.|
|-C <cover page program>|
Specify that the named program is to be used to generate a cover page for
the fax that is being queued. How the program is called is described in the
The special program name "-" is used to specify "no coverpage at all".
No message is issued if the program isnt found, or cannot be executed, faxspool will simply queue the fax without cover page.
The default cover page program used is $HOME/.make.coverpg; if this file doesnt exist /usr/local/lib/mgetty+sendfax/make.coverpg is used. (However, if $HOME/.make.coverpg exists, but is not executable, no coverpage is used at all.)
|-p||Spool a request that will try polling (see "sendfax -p"). The implementation isnt too smart yet, the polled files will simply go into the jobs spool directory.|
|Dont send the fax before the time given. It may not be sent exactly at <hh:mm>, but the first time faxrunq runs after that time. If the fax cannot be sent successfully before midnight, it wont be sent on the next day until <hh:mm>!|
|Only send the fax in the time range between those two times. This is only implemented in faxrunqd. If the second time specified is earlier than the first time, it is interpreted as a time range crossing midnight.|
|pass faxspool a chunk of data that is ignored (so you can put anything you want here), but written to all the log files (acct.log, sendfax.log). This can be used to tag faxes as private/corporate, to tag faxes with the customer ID to use for billing, or something along that lines.|
|-m <phone1> <phone2> <phone3> ... --|
|Multicasting - send the specified files to all phone numbers in the list given after "-m". The list is terminated with "--". "-m" has to be the last option on the command line (not implemented yet).|
|-M <file name>|
|Multicasting - read a list of telephone numbers to send the fax to from the given file. Do not use in conjunction with "-m" (not implemented yet).|
|-c||Copy source files to a sub directory ".source-files/" in the fax queue directory (most likely, you wont ever need this - I needed it for one project, so its here and documented. Dont ask what its good for).|
/var/spool/fax/outgoing/* fax spool directory /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/faxaliases global fax alias file $HOME/.faxnrs private fax alias file /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/fax.allow list of allowed users /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/fax.deny list of denied users /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/faxheader default fax page header /usr/local/lib/mgetty+sendfax/make.coverpg program to create fax cover page (see coverpg(1)). /usr/local/etc/mgetty+sendfax/faxspool.rules program to control which file extentions are recognized (.txt, .ps, ...) and how those file formats should be converted to G3. /usr/local/lib/mgetty+sendfax/faxq-helper this a small C helper program that facilitates access to the fax spool queue (which is since mgetty 1.1.29 no longer world-writeable)
faxspool is not too smart about recognizing file types
Use of faxspool -n with bitmap files may give wrong results, depending on the aspect ratio of the input files.
Multicasting with the -m and -M options is not implemented yet.
