faxrm - remove fax jobs queued by faxspool(1)
faxrm [-i] [job-ids...]
Remove job(s) from the fax queue set up by faxspool(1).
faxrm removes queued fax jobs. Call with a list of job-IDs to remove
specific jobs. Call with no job IDs to be asked interactively about
all jobs you own (if run by root, all jobs). For job-id, use the
strings returned by faxq(1) (e.g. F000015), without the ‘‘/JOB’’ exten-
If you are not the owner of the fax job (as per the ’user xyz’ state-
ment inside the JOB file), you are not allowed to remove the fax job.
Only root is permitted to remove another user’s faxes.
If the job is locked (most likely because sendfax(8) is active sending
it), faxrm doesn’t attempt to remove it. Instead, it prints a warning
message on stderr and goes on to the next job.
faxrm F000005 F000033
-i (interactive mode) Tells faxrm to ask for confirmation before
removing the job (UNIMPLEMENTED).
faxrm doesn’t return diagnostic exit codes yet.
