[ -q queue-dir
] [ modem

server process telling it to
is specified, the faxgetty
(8) process servicing the
specified modem is notified. 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.
If no modem is specified, faxquit
will send the request to the ``FIFO''
named pipe file causing the HylaFAX
queue manager process to terminate.
Note that server processes may not terminate immediately. In particular the
process will not exit until any active jobs are completed; this is
necessary for proper operation (faxq
must wait for child processes to
terminate so that it can collect their exit status and update the state of the
jobs being operated on).
