It can also be used to query the state of queues. .LP If no command is specified on the command-line, \fRlpc\fR will display a prompt and accept commands from the standard input. .SH COMMANDS The \fIlpc\fR program accepts a subset of commands accepted by the Berkeley \fIlpc\fR program of the same name: .TP 5 exit .br Exits the command interpreter. .TP 5 help [command] .TP 5 ? [command] .br Displays a short help message. .TP 5 quit .br Exits the command interpreter. .TP 5 status [queue] .br Displays the status of one or more printer or class queues. .SH LIMITATIONS Since \fIlpc\fR is geared towards the Berkeley printing system, it is impossible to use \fIlpc\fR to configure printer or class queues provided by CUPS. To configure printer or class queues you must use the \fIlpadmin(8)\fR command or another CUPS-compatible client with that functionality. .SH COMPATIBILITY The CUPS version of \fIlpc\fR does not implement all of the standard Berkeley or LPRng commands. .SH SEE ALSO \fIcancel(1)\fR, \fIcupsaccept(8)\fR, \fIcupsenable(8)\fR, \fIlp(1)\fR, \fIlpr(1)\fR, \fIlprm(1)\fR, \fIlpstat(1)\fR, .br http://localhost:631/help .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 2007-2009 by Apple Inc. .\" .\" End of "$Id: lpc.man 7600 2008-05-20 21:06:23Z mike $". .\"
