       faxinfo - print information about a received facsimile


       Basic usage:

       /usr/sbin/faxinfo [ -b ] [ -n ] [ -D ] file.tif [ file2.tif [...] ]

       Formatting shortcuts:

       /usr/sbin/faxinfo [ -C delim | -c delim | -r ] file.tif [ file2.tif ] ]

       Raw formatting:

       /usr/sbin/faxinfo [ -S fmt ] [ -s fmt ] [ -e fmt ] [ -E fmt ] file.tif [ file2.tif ] ]


       faxinfo  prints  descriptive information on the standard output about a received facsimile
       file.  For example:

                  Sender: +14159657824
                   Pages: 3
                 Quality: Normal
                    Page: North American Letter
                Received: 1996:01:19 13:51:02
              TimeToRecv: 0:39
              SignalRate: 14400 bit/s
              DataFormat: 2-D MR
              ErrCorrect: No
                 CallID1: 2152345678
                 CallID2: 1234

       This information  is  typically  included  in  the  notification  mail  generated  by  the
       faxrcvd(8) script when a facsimile is received by HylaFAX.

       -n     suppresses the printing of the filename.

       -b     strips any leading directory of the filename before printing

       -D     prints the actual print strings being used for debug purposes

       Formatting shortcuts:

       -C delim
              Sets the format to a quoted CSV, shortcut to
              -S '"%s"' -s ',"' -e '"' -E '\n'

       -c delim
              Sets the format to a CSV, shortcut to:
              -S '%s' -s ',' -e '' -E '\n'

       -r     Sets the format to raw values, shortcut to:
              -S '' -s '' -e '0 -E ''

       Raw formating:

       -S fmt used to start each fax, it is passed one parameter, the fax file name

       -s fmt used to start each field, it is passed one parameter, the field name

       -e fmt used to end each field, it is passed one parameter, the field name

       -E fmt used to end each fax, it is passed one parameter, the fax file name


       The  information  that  faxinfo  prints is obtained from the tags stored in the TIFF image
       that is written by the HylaFAX software.  If faxinfo is presented  with  an  invalid  TIFF
       image  it  may  print  uninteresting  information.  Similarly if a TIFF image that was not
       written by HylaFAX is supplied as  an  argument  then  only  partial  information  may  be
       printed—this is because HylaFAX stores certain information in private tags that other TIFF
       writers may not emit.

       Use of the raw fmt options to allow you to directly control the print format strings  used
       when formating the output.  These format strings are passed directly to printf, with basic
       \<char> sequences being interpreted, including \n, \r, and \t, and can be used to make the
       faxinfo output conform to specific requirements, like peculiar CVS, tables, HTML, etc.

       The  order  of the options is important.  They are parsed from first to last, so any later
       options will override settings of previous ones.


       faxinfo return 0 on success and 1 if the file passed as argument is not valid.
