NAME
cupsd - cups scheduler SYNOPSIS
cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ] DESCRIPTION
cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used. OPTIONS
-c config-file Uses the named configuration file. -f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon". -F Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init(8). -h Shows the program usage. -l This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8). -t Test the configuration file for syntax errors. COMPATIBILITY
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations. SEE ALSO
backend(7), classes.conf(5), cups-deviced(8), cups-driverd(8), cups-lpd(8), cups-polld(8), cupsd.conf(5), filter(7), launchd(8), mime.convs(5), mime.types(5), printers.conf(5), http://localhost:631/help COPYRIGHT
