faxq(1)			     mgetty+sendfax manual		       faxq(1)

NAME
       faxq - display fax jobs queued by faxspool(1)

SYNOPSIS
       faxq [<command>]	[-osa] [-v] [-r] [-P<job><prio>]

DESCRIPTION
       Display the fax queue set up by faxspool(1).

       faxq    looks   for   all   the	 jobs	queued	 by   faxspool(1)   to
       /var/spool/fax/outgoing/*. For each job in  the	queue,	faxq  displays
       some  status  informations  about  it. If no options are	specified, one
       line per	queued fax job is printed, displaying the job number,  sender,
       number of pages and target fax number.

COMMANDS
       faxq  stop  stops  the  fax  queue  processing  by  creating  the  file
       /var/spool/fax/outgoing/stop.  This command  works  only	 if  you  have
       write  access  to  the spool directory.	Depending on local setup, this
       means ``root only'' or ``fax administrator group''.  If you don't  have
       write access, an	error message is printed.

       faxq  start  re-starts  a previously stopped fax	queue, by removing the
       ``stop''	file.  As for faxq stop	this only works	if you have write  ac-
       cess.

OPTIONS
       -v     Tells faxq to print a more verbose report	for each job (multiple
	      lines).

       -o     Show old jobs, already sent but still in	the  queue  directory,
	      too.

       -s     Show  suspended  jobs  (stopped because of too many fatal	errors
	      during sending). You can restart those jobs with faxq -r

       -a     Show all jobs (active, old, suspended).

       -r     Restart suspended	jobs. Every suspended job in the  queue	 (that
	      you  have	write permissions for) will be requeued.  Use faxrm to
	      delete jobs that you do not want to be sent!

       -P <job>	<prio>
	      Change the priority of fax job <job> to <prio>.  Example:	 "faxq
	      -P F000247 3".

BUGS
       faxq doesn't handle time	scheduling yet.

       faxq -P is currently broken (needs re-implementing with faxq-helper).
