Description:
Programs to send and receive fax messages. efax is a small ANSI C/POSIX program that provides the data transport function for fax applications using any Class 1 or Class 2 fax modem. Another program, efix, converts between fax, text, bit-map and gray-scale formats. fax, a shell script, provides a simple user interface to the efax and efix programs. It allows you to send text or Postscript files as faxes and receive, print or preview received faxes. You need ghostscript to fax Postscript. To preview faxes you need a PGM file viewer as xloadimage.

Note that you probably have to adapt /etc/efax.rc to your needs.
