Please note : The recent patch program version 2.5 has a different default behaviour from the traditional patch we have all grown up with.
Instructions in each of the patch files below mostly relate to the older versions and so may have to be amended for use with the new version.
Compatibility is available through the following options :
patch -bp0 --verbose < a_diff_file.patch
For further details, I suggest the Patch for Beginners article in Issue 32 of the Linux Gazette.

faxcron-dirs.patch Faxcron was sometimes bothering with minor error messages when grep'ing directories. This diff made it shut up.

faxclient.patch This patch allows specification of the ModemFmt, JobFmt & RcvFmt in the environment. This way the changes in the format string can be made on the fly. It also adds two new options -m and -n, which turn off the server and modem status reports and turn off the headers. This is all designed to make it easier to parse the output.
