       faxq - display fax jobs queued by faxspool(1)


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


       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.


       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 access.


       -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 <job>

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

       -r <job>
              Restart job with the given ID(s) ("-r F012345" or "-r F01234*").

       -r all Restart  ALL  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".


       faxq doesn't handle time scheduling yet.

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