faxabort - tell a HylaFAX server to abort a receive
/usr/sbin/faxabort [ -q dir ] modem
faxabort sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8) process servicing
modem telling it to abort any active receive operation.
The specified modem can either be the name (typically the last
component of the terminal port the modem is attached to), or the full
name of the associated FIFO named pipe file, e.g. ‘‘FIFO.ttym2’’.
Note that to abort a send operation the faxrm(1) command must be used.
-q dir Use a spooling area other than /var/spool/hylafax.
On some systems it is not possible to abort a received facsimile
because of problems in the operating system; on such systems the
message sent by faxabort will be (silently) ignored.
/var/spool/hylafax default spooling area
/var/spool/hylafax/FIFO fifo for contacting faxq
Consult hylafax-server(5) for a complete discussion of the structure
and content of the spooling area.
