I'm looking for an efficient command line method to add header text into
fax documents.

This can be done with ImageMagick, but it's painfully slow and uses far
too much memory if it's a large fax (tens or hundreds of pages).
You're using the Q8 version of ImageMagick? "too much memory consume" was a 
frequent complaint of Q16 users.

I've successfully deployed GraphicsMagick to fax servers for similar tasks for 
years, and have never seen problems like this - only very few of them had to 
handle fax messages with more than 20 pages, though.

Preferring GM over IM was due to my somewhat mixed experience with IM in the 
past, as the latter's random features per release were starting to annoy me. I 
haven't kept up with its overall performance and development in the past 8 
years, however.

GraphicsMagick looks almost perfect. It's much more efficient than
ImageMagick and it does almost everything I need. One feature doesn't
seem to do what I expect, but if I can't get it to work, I can work
around it.

Thanks for that pointer.
