Well, I would hate to see the sed/awk/grep that would need to go into faxrcvd/notify to make them work with all versions of awk/mawk/gawk on AIX, solaris, HP-UX, SCOX, etc... If you want an all-dancing template based faxrcvd/notify, I really think you have to move away from shells scripting to somethig else (perl, python, C/C++, etc) a. -- Aidan Van Dyk Create like a god, aidan@xxxxxxxxxxx command like a king, http://www.highrise.ca/ work like a slave.
