FBSD 4.9
efax-0.9a-001114a7_1.tgz

given the following text file (60 lines long) and the efax command:

$ efix -i text -n fax.%02x.tif -r 204.1x195.6 -p 8.465x11 -l 60 FILE

the following errors occur:

1. if a newline terminates the 60th line, a blank 2nd fax image is
    falsely created.

2. if the length of line #1 exceeds 93 characters, a 2nd fax image
    is falsely created with some bogus characters (this happens
    with NO newline at line 60).

3. it is very bad that a 1 inch margin is automatically created in the image.
    it is very bad for faxing related to the legal system where margins
    must be exactly correct (or it will not be accepted).  if i already
    have a 1 inch margin, efix gives me a 2 inch margin.  this is a headache.

* thanks for the great software!  i love the design!  simple!  functional!
    i hope these problems can be fixed!  i REALLY need this program to work
    properly :)
