NAME
       lp - print files
       cancel - cancel jobs

SYNOPSIS
       lp [ -E ] [ -c ] [ -d destination ] [ -h server ] [ -m ] [ -n num-
       copies [ -o option ] [ -q priority ] [ -s ] [ -t title ] [ -H handling
       ] [ -P page-list ] [ file(s) ]
       lp [ -E ] [ -c ] [ -h server ] [ -i job-id ] [ -n num-copies [ -o
       option ] [ -q priority ] [ -t title ] [ -H handling ] [ -P page-list ]
       cancel [ -a ] [ -h server ] [ -u username ] [ id ] [ destination ] [
       destination-id ]

DESCRIPTION
       lp submits files for printing or alters a pending job. Use a filename
       of "-" to force printing from the standard input.

       cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all jobs
       from the specified destination.

OPTIONS
       The following options are recognized by lp:

       -E
            Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -c
            This option is provided for backwards-compatibility only. On
            systems that support it, this option forces the print file to be
            copied to the spool directory before printing. In CUPS, print
            files are always sent to the scheduler via IPP which has the same
            effect.

       -d destination
            Prints files to the named printer.

       -h hostname
            Specifies the print server hostname. The default is "localhost" or
            the value of the CUPS_SERVER environment variable.

       -i job-id
            Specifies an existing job to modify.

       -m
            Send email when the job is completed (not supported CUPS 1.1.)

       -n copies
            Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100.

       -o option
            Sets a job option.

       -q priority
            Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). The
            default priority is 50.

       -s
            Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t name
            Sets the job name.

       -u username
            Cancels jobs owned by username.

       -H handling
            Specifies when the job should be printed. A value of immediate
            will print the file immediately, a value of hold will hold the job
            indefinitely, and a time value (HH:MM) will hold the job until the
            specified time. Use a value of resume with the -i option to resume
            a held job.  Use a value of restart with the -i option to restart
            a completed job.

       -P page-list
            Specifies which pages to print in the document. The list can
            contain a list of numbers and ranges (#-#) separated by commas
            (e.g. 1,3-5,16).

COMPATIBILITY
       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to
       contain any printable character except SPACE and TAB. Also, printer and
       class names are not case-sensitive.

       The "m" option is not functional in CUPS 1.1.

       The "q" option accepts a different range of values than the Solaris lp
       command, matching the IPP job priority values (1-100) instead of the
       Solaris values (0-39).

NOTES
       Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via
       the -u option should password-protect the /jobs location in
       cupsd.conf(5).
