NAME
foomatic-printjob - manage printer jobs in a spooler-independent fashion SYNOPSIS
foomatic-printjob [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -o option1=value1 -o option2 ... ] [ -i ] [ file1 file2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -Q [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ -a ] [ user1 user2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -R [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -C [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] command [ arguments ] foomatic-printjob -S [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] foomatic-printjob -h [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] DESCRIPTION
foomatic-printjob provides a spooler-independent interface to creating and managing printer jobs and print queues. Note that the first argument changes the mode of the command, as it combines the functionality of several System V-style printing commands. OPTIONS -sspooler Explicit spooler type. -Pqueuename Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead of the default. -ooption=value Set option to value -ooption Set the switch option -#n Print n copies file1 file2 ... Files to be printed, when no file is given, standard input will be printed -Q Query the jobs in a queue. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried. -Q -a Query the jobs in all queues. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried. -R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ] Remove a job from a queue. Using - will remove all jobs. -C command [ arguments ] Execute control commands for queue/job manipulation. The commands are the ones of the BSD "lpc" utility. Use the control command "help" to get a list of supported commands. Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the same commands given under different spoolers do the same thing. -i Interactive mode: You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is in doubt about something. Otherwise foomatic-printjob uses auto- detection or quits with an error. -S Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler -h Show this message or show a list of available options if a queue is specified SEE ALSO
