[hylafax-users] Multiple Recipients Script


Running HylaFAX 4.1.2 under FreeBSD 4.5.
If I have to submit the same document to multiple recipients I use the 
following script -

# Script to start faxing
# Current Faxing - faxnum1.txt
for i in `cat faxnlist.txt`;do sendfax -k "now +168 hours" -T 4 -n -d $i 

What it does it takes a fax number from faxnlist.txt, which contains a fax 
number on each line.... However what I am trying to achieve is this - take 
40 numbers at a time from faxnlist.txt, so it will do sendfax -k "now +168 
hours" -T 4 -n -d $faxn1 -d $faxn2 -d $faxn3 -d $faxn4 -d $faxn5 -d 
$faxn6.... -d $faxn40 fax.tif;done;
This will save a lot of disk space.. Can somebody help me out in writing the 
script? I tried of doing it myself in bash but I didn't succeed.

Thank You
