       recvq/fax* - received facsimile document	format

       Facsimile  received  by	HylaFAX	 are placed in the recvq subdirectory.
       Each facsimile document is stored as a single Class F Tagged Image File
       Format (TIFF) file.  This format	includes the following information:
	      o	page width and length
	      o	horizontal and vertical	resolution
	      o	page orientation
	      o	phone number of	the sender
	      o	date and time document was received
	      o	number of scanlines received with errors
	      o	maximum	number of consecutive scanlines	received with errors
	      o	whether	or not bad scanlines were regenerated by the receiver
	      o	make and model of the modem used to receive the	document
	      o	name of	the host computer on which the document	was received

       Image  data is written using either CCITT T.4 or	CCITT T.6 compression.
       By default data is written using	the compression	scheme/data format ne-
       gotiated	 by the	sender and receiver.  However, if faxgetty(8C) is con-
       figured to do copy quality checking then	data is	written	using the com-
       pression	 scheme	defined	by the RecvDataFormat configuration parameter;
       see hylafax-config(5F).

       A scanline that is regenerated by the receiver because of an  error  is
       typically just a	copy of	the previous good scanline.

       The  files  in the recvq	directory are created with the protection mode
       specified in the	server configuration file(s).  By default,  files  are
       created with mode 0600 and owned	by the fax user, which means that they
       are accessible only to the fax user.

       To print	a facsimile on a POSTSCRIPT(R) printer,	the fax2ps(1)  program
       can be used.
