sendq/q* - HylaFAX outbound job description
Files in the sendq directory specify transmission job requests. These
files are created by hfaxd(8), when submitting a job on behalf of
sendfax(1) or sendpage(1). Job description files also reside in the
doneq directory; they are moved there by faxq(8) when a job completes.
Job description files are ASCII files with lines of the form
where a tag is one of the identifiers described below and a value is
either a string or number. Values start at the first non-blank
character after the ‘‘:’’ and continue to the end of the line. Lines
that end with a backslash character ‘‘\’’ are continued to the next
line. Numeric values are decimal integers, except for chophreshold
which is expressed as a floating point value.
The following table lists the possible tags and the required type of
the associated value.

chopthreshold The minimum trailing whitespace (in inches) that must
appear on a page for it to be considered for ‘‘page
chopping’’. If this parameter is not specified then the
value specified by the PageChopThreshold configuration
parameter is used; see hylafax-config(5).
commid The communication identifier for the last outbound call
placed for this job. This string is of the form
‘‘XXXXXXXX’’ where XXXXXXXX is a decimal sequence number
in the range 1-99999999.
client The fully qualified hostname for the machine from which
the job was submitted. If the hostname is unknown at the
time the job is submitted, then the host address in
Internet standard ‘‘.’’ (dot) notation is supplied
company The receiver’s company name as specified with the -x
option to sendfax(1). This value is used only when
creating continuation cover pages.
cover The pathname of a continuation cover page to send. The
file must be TIFF/F (i.e. it must already be prepared for
transmission). This document will be transmitted before
any other documents listed in the file. See
ContCoverPage and ContCoverCmd in hylafax-config(5).
data The pathname of a document to send. Once a document has
been processed, it is marked as !data so that subsequent
retries do not reprocess the document.
dataformat The format used to transmit facsimile data. This item is
recorded by faxsend(8) so that notify(8) can return it in
a notification message.
desiredbr The desired signalling rate to use for page data
transmissions: 0 for 2400 bps, 1 for 4800 bps, 2 for 7200
bps, 3 for 9600 bps, 4 for 12000 bps, 5 for 14400 bps, 6
for 16800 bps, 7 for 19200 bps, 8 for 21600 bps, 9 for
24000 bps, 10 for 26400 bps, 11 for 28800 bps, 12 for

with uncompressed data, and 4 for 2-D MMR (default).
desiredec Which type of Error Correction Mode (ECM) to use: 0 to
disable, 1 for 64-byte ECM, 2 for 256-byte ECM (default).
desiredst The desired minimum scanline time to use for page data
transmissions: 0 for 0 ms (default), 1 for 5 ms, 2 for
10ms/5ms, 3 for 10ms, 4 for 20ms/10ms, 5 for 20ms, 6 for
40ms/20ms, and 7 for 40ms. This value is used in
selecting the negotiated session parameters.
desiredtl Whether or not to use the format string specified by the
tagline job parameter when imaging taglines on document
pages. If this value is non-zero then per-job format
string is used; otherwise the tagline format string
specified in the server configuration file is used; see
TagLineFormat in hylafax-config(5).
doneop The treatment the job should be given when it is
processed by the faxqclean(8) job cleaner program. The
may be one of remove (to expunge the job description file
and all associated documents that are not referenced by
another job) or archive (to request that the job and
associated documents be archived on the server machine).
Consult faxqclean more details on other information that
may be included in this string.
errorcode The codified form of the status message intended for use
by clients which provide customized status messages keyed
from this standard index.
external The external form of the dialstring. This string is used
instead of the dialstring in any status and log messages.
Clients can protect private information such as access
codes that must be placed in dialstrings by supplying a
‘‘cleansed’’ version of the dialstring.
fax The pathname of a TIFF/F document that is ready for
transmission. If the pathname string has a leading
‘‘xx:’’, then ‘‘xx’’ is interpreted to be the index of
the first directory in the file to transmit (directories
are numbered starting at zero).
faxnumber The number to use when sending a fax. Parallel’s
FAXNumber device config option.
groupid The job group identifier, an integer number in the range
1 to 32000 assigned to each group of jobs by the HylaFAX
software. Each job in a group of jobs submitted at the
same time is assigned the same value by the HylaFAX
jobid The job identifier, a unique integer number in the range
1 to 32000 assigned to each job by the HylaFAX software.
jobtag A user-specified string that is intended for
identification purposes. If this string is defined, it
is returned to the user in notification messages instead
of the job identifier.
killtime The time to kill this job, expressed in seconds since
00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970.
location The receiver’s location as specified with the -y option
to sendfax(1). This value is used only when creating
continuation cover pages.
mailaddr The electronic mail address to which notification
messages should be directed.
maxdials The maximum number of times the server should dial the
phone. If the job cannot be completed in this number of
calls, it is terminated.
maxtries The maximum number of times the server should attempt to
send a job; where an attempt is defined to be a session
that makes it past Phase A of the CCITT T.30 protocol
(for facsimile), or similar. If the job cannot be
completed in this number of tries, it is terminated.
minsp The minimum signalling rate to use for transmitting page
data: 0 for 2400 bps (default), 1 for 4800 bps, 2 for
7200 bps, 3 for 9600 bps, 4 for 12000 bps, 5 for 14400
bps, 6 for 16800 bps, 7 for 19200 bps, 8 for 21600 bps, 9
for 24000 bps, 10 for 26400 bps, 11 for 28800 bps, 12 for
31200 bps, and 13 for 33600 bps.
modem The outgoing modem to use to send the job, or ‘‘any’’ if
any available modem is acceptable.
owner The identity of the user that owns the job. Typically
the owner is the user that created the job, though
clients with administrative privileges can change the
ownership of jobs. The value is the string specified in
the USER command passed to hfaxd(8) when a client logins
in to the server.
notify A specification of whether the sender wants notification:
whenever the job is requeued after a failed attempt to
transmit (‘‘when requeued’’), when the job is completed
(‘‘when done’’), either of the above (‘‘when
done+requeued’’), or not at all (‘‘none’’).
npages The number of pages in the facsimile, including the cover
page, that have been successfully transmitted.
ntries The number of unsuccessful attempts that have been made
to transmit the current page.
ndials The number of consecutive unsuccessful attempts to
establish carrier with the the remote device.
number The dialstring to use to call the destination device.
page a string with PIN and to use in processing a page
pagechop Whether or not to automatically truncate trailing
whitespace on pages of outbound facsimile; see PageChop
in hylafax-config(5). The possible values are:
‘‘default’’ to use the setting of the PageChop
configuration parameter, ‘‘none’’ to disable page
chopping, ‘‘all’’ to enable chopping of all pages, and
‘‘last’’ to enable chopping of the last page of each
pagehandling A string that contains per-page information used during
facsimile transmission. Most of the information is used
in the negotiation of session capabilities with optional
information used in the implementation of page chopping.
The string has three characters, say xxc, for each page
to be transmitted. The xx characters are a hex-encoded
specification of the session capabilities required to
transmit the page. The c character is one of ‘‘M’’,
‘‘S’’, and ‘‘P’’; where: ‘‘M’’ indicates there is another
page to follow and that the page requires different T.30
session parameters be negotiated (an EOM code is to be
transmitted). ‘‘S’’ indicates there is another page to
follow, but the page uses the same session parameters (an
MPS. code is to be transmitted). ‘‘P’’ indicates this
is the last page to be transmitted (an EOP code is to be
transmitted). In addition, if page chopping has been
enabled and the page has enough trailing whitespace to be
a candidate, then each three character string will be
followed by a string of the form ‘‘ZXXXX’’, where
‘‘XXXX’’ is a 4 digit hex-encoded count of the number of
bytes of data to send for a chopped page.
pagelength The desired page length in millimeters.
pagewidth The desired page width in millimeters.
pcl The pathname of a PCL document to send. Once a PCL
document has been processed by faxsend, it is marked as
!pcl so that subsequent retries do not reprocess the
poll The value is a Caller Identification String (CIS) to use
in making a polling request. If no CIS is specified then
faxsend will form one from the FAXNumber configuration
postscript The pathname of a POSTSCRIPT® document to send. Once a
POSTSCRIPT document has been processed by faxsend, it is
marked as !postscript so that subsequent retries do not
reprocess the document.
receiver The receiver’s name. This value is used only when
creating continuation cover pages.
resolution The desired vertical resolution in lines per inch. This
value should be either 98 or 196.
retrytime The time, in seconds, to delay between each attempt to
transmit a job that fails because of a communication-
oriented problem. Normally jobs are scheduled according
to a collection of configuration parameters that are
tuned for the specific reason of each failure; e.g. see
JobReqProto in hylafax-config(5).
returned Used internally to determine the last return value of the
job send attempt.
sender The ‘‘full name’’ of the sender of the facsimile.
signalrate The signalling rate used to transmit facsimile data.
This item is recorded by faxsend(8) so that notify(8) can
return it in a notification message.
state The job scheduling state. Recognized values are: 1
(suspended, not being scheduled), 2 (pending, waiting for
the time to send), 3 (sleeping, waiting for a scheduled
timeout), 4 (blocked, waiting for concurrent activity to
the same destination to complete), 5 (ready, ready to be
processed except for available resources), 6 (active,
actively being processed by HylaFAX), 7 (done, processing
completed with success). 8 (failed, processing completed
with a failure).
status Status information about the current state of the job.
Typically this is the reason why the last attempt to send
the facsimile failed.
subaddr The SubAddress information to transmit when sending a
facsimile. This string should be used by the receiver to
route received facsimile documents.
tagline The format string to use in imaging taglines on outgoing
documents. Note that this parameter is only used if the
desiredtl parameter is non-zero.
tiff The pathname of a TIFF/F document to send. Once a TIFF
document has been processed by faxsend, it is marked as
!tiff so that subsequent retries do not reprocess the
totdials The total number of times the server has placed a call to
the receiving phone number.
totpages The total number of pages to be transmitted.
tottries The total number of attempts to transmit a job; see
tsi TSI to use when sending. This is only used if the device
has been configured to allow it. Otherwise, the
configured LocalIdentifier. is used.
tts The time to send the job. If this value is non-zero, it
is number of seconds since 00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970.
Otherwise, a value of 0 is interpreted to mean process as
soon as possible.
useccover 1 if the job should use a continuation cover page during
retransmission, 0 otherwise.
usexvres 1 if the job should use the highest possible vertical
resolution, 0 otherwise. See hylafax-server(5) for a
description of continuation cover pages.
