Sends and receives faxes

efax is a small simple fax system for single user systems. It is smaller and easier to install than HylaFAX or mgetty+sendfax. The ``fax command, a shell script, lets you send, receive, view and print faxes. In larger systems, faxes can be sent by printing to a ``fax printer and received faxes can be e-mailed as MIME attachments to an administrator for distribution. efax can also pass incoming data calls to a getty program. The efax package includes ``efix, a program to convert between various image file formats. To fax Postscript files you will need Ghostscript. To view faxes you can use any program that displays PGM files (e.g. xloadimage or xv). efix can also convert received files to Postscript or HP Laserjet formats for printing.
