Use a filename of "-" to force printing from the standard input. .LP \fBcancel\fR cancels existing print jobs. The \fI-a\fR option will remove all jobs from the specified destination. .SH OPTIONS The following options are recognized by \fBlp\fR: .TP 5 \-E .br Forces encryption when connecting to the server. .TP 5 \-c .br 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. .TP 5 \-d \fIdestination\fR .br Prints files to the named printer. .TP 5 \-h \fIhostname\fR .br Specifies the print server hostname. The default is "localhost" or the value of the CUPS_SERVER environment variable. .TP 5 \-i \fIjob-id\fR .br Specifies an existing job to modify. .TP 5 \-m .br Send email when the job is completed (not supported CUPS 1.1.) .TP 5 \-n \fIcopies\fR .br Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100. .TP 5 \-o \fIoption\fR .br Sets a job option. .TP 5 \-q \fIpriority\fR .br Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). The default priority is 50. .TP 5 \-s .br Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.) .TP 5 \-t \fIname\fR .br Sets the job name. .TP 5 \-u \fIusername\fR .br Cancels jobs owned by \fIusername\fR. .TP 5 \-w .br Report the resulting job IDs. .TP 5 \-H \fIhandling\fR .br Specifies when the job should be printed. A value of \fIimmediate\fR will print the file immediately, a value of \fIhold\fR will hold the job indefinitely, and a time value (HH:MM) will hold the job until the specified time. Use a value of \fIresume\fR with the \fI-i\fR option to resume a held job. Use a value of \fIrestart\fR with the \fI-i\fR option to restart a completed job. .TP 5 \-P \fIpage-list\fR .br 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). .LP The interpretation of options may be cancelled by the option `--'. This will allow the use of file names that begin with a dash (`-'). For example: .D1 lp -- -filename .SH 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 \fBnot\fR case-sensitive. .LP The "m" option is not functional in CUPS 1.1. .LP 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). .SH NOTES Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via the \fI-u\fR option should password-protect the /jobs location in \fIcupsd.conf(5)\fR. .SH SEE ALSO lpstat(1), CUPS Software Users Manual, http://localhost:631/documentation.html .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 1993-2005 by Easy Software Products, All Rights Reserved. .\" .\" End of "$Id: lp.man,v 1.3 2005/01/04 22:10:44 jlovell Exp $". .\"
