Right now I need to keep a copy of all faxes. I'm using faxqclean with the -A switch to ensure this. The archive directory keeps a copy of each fax and its logs in a sub-directory, which is named based off the faxes "q" number. What happens when the "q" number wraps around?

As it is it overwrites. Call it a feature for limited filesystem space ;-)

Really, the archive script was meant to be an example only for "typical" use. For now I would hope that people using it would customize it a bit... or at least know what it does.

Unfortuately my c++ skill is at the most basic of levels, so hacking faxqclean is a long way off for me. I'll probably end up writing something in perl to process the archive. Since hylafax will clobber it eventually (thankfully a while off for us), I'll probably make it move the archive into a database. Then I can query the database for the reports I will need to have.


To make sure I'm reading it proplerly, that is a patch to change the max number to 999,999,999, but it hasn't been applied yet. Currently the number is 32,000.
