NAME
       lpr - print files

SYNOPSIS
       lpr [ -E ] [ -P destination ] [ -# num-copies [ -l ] [ -o option ] [
       -p] [ -r ] [ -C/J/T title ] [ file(s) ]

DESCRIPTION
       lpr submits files for printing. Files named on the command line are
       sent to the named printer (or the system default destination if no
       destination is specified). If no files are listed on the command-line
       lpr reads the print file from the standard input.

OPTIONS
       The following options are recognized by lpr:

       -E
            Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -P destination
            Prints files to the named printer.

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

       -C name
            Sets the job name.

       -J name
            Sets the job name.

       -T name
            Sets the job name.

       -l
            Specifies that the print file is already formatted for the
            destination and should be sent without filtering. This option is
            equivalent to "-oraw".

       -o option
            Sets a job option.

       -p
            Specifies that the print file should be formatted with a shaded
            header with the date, time, job name, and page number. This option
            is equivalent to "-oprettyprint" and is only useful when printing
            text files.

       -r
            Specifies that the named print files should be deleted after
            printing them.

COMPATIBILITY
       The "c", "d", "f", "g", "i", "m", "n", "t", "v", and "w" options are
       not supported by CUPS and will produce a warning message if used.
