FAXABORT(8C)                                                      FAXABORT(8C)



NAME
       faxabort - tell a HylaFAX server to abort a receive

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/faxabort [ -q dir ] modem

DESCRIPTION
       faxabort sends a message to a HylaFAX faxgetty(8C) 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.

OPTIONS
       -q dir    Use a spooling area other than /var/spool/hylafax.

NOTES
       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.

FILES
       /var/spool/hylafax                 default spooling area
       /var/spool/hylafax/FIFO            fifo for contacting faxq

       Consult hylafax-server(5F) for a complete discussion of the structure
       and content of the spooling area.
