NAME
       lpr - print files

SYNOPSIS
       lpr  [  -E  ] [ -H server[:port] ] [ -U username ] [ -P destination[/instance] ] [ -# num-
       copies [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -m ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -p] [ -q ] [ -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 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.

THE DEFAULT DESTINATION
       CUPS  provides  many ways to set the default destination. The "LPDEST" and "PRINTER" envi-
       ronment variables are consulted first. If neither are set, the current default  set  using
       the  lpoptions(1)  command  is used, followed by the default set using the lpadmin(8) com-
       mand.

OPTIONS
       The following options are recognized by lpr:

       -E
	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -H server[:port]
	    Specifies an alternate server.

       -C "name"

       -J "name"

       -T "name"
	    Sets the job name.

       -P destination[/instance]
	    Prints files to the named printer.

       -U username
	    Specifies an alternate username.

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

       -h
	    Disables banner printing. This option is equivalent to "-o job-sheets=none".

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

       -m
	    Send an email on job completion.

       -o option[=value]
	    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 "-o prettyprint" and is
	    only useful when printing text files.

       -q
	    Hold job for printing.

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

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