OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for cancel (opensolaris section 1)

NAME
       cancel - cancel print request

SYNOPSIS
       cancel [request-ID...] [destination]...

       cancel -u user... [destination]...

DESCRIPTION
       The cancel utility cancels print requests. There are two forms of the cancel command.

       The  first form of cancel has two optional arguments: print requests (request-ID) and des-
       tinations (destination). Specifying request-ID with destination cancels request-ID on des-
       tination.  Specifying  only  the destination cancels the current print request on destina-
       tion. If destination is not specified, cancel cancels the requested print request  on  all
       destinations.

       The second form of cancel cancels a user's print requests on specific destinations.

       Users can only cancel print requests associated with their username. By default, users can
       only cancel print requests on the host from which the print request was	submitted.  If	a
       super-user  has set user-equivalence=true in /etc/printers.conf on the print server, users
       can cancel print requests associated with their username on any host. Super-users can can-
       cel  print requests on the host from which the print request was submitted. Superusers can
       also cancel print requests from the print server.

       The print client commands locate destination information using the  printers  database  in
       the  name  service  switch.  See  nsswitch.conf(4),  printers(4), and printers.conf(4) for
       details.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -u user	  The name of the user for which print requests are to be cancelled. Specify user
		  as a username.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       destination    The destination on which the print requests are to be canceled. destination
		      is the name of a printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)). If  desti-
		      nation  is not specified, cancel cancels the requested print request on all
		      destinations. Specify destination using  atomic,	URI-style  (scheme://end-
		      point),  or POSIX-style (server:destination), names. See Notes for informa-
		      tion regarding using URI-style or POSIX-style destination names  with  can-
		      cel. See printers.conf(4) for more information.

       request-ID     The print request to be canceled. Specify request-ID using LP-style request
		      IDs (destination-number).

       user	      The name of the user for which the print	requests  are  to  be  cancelled.
		      Specify user as a username.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0	   Successful completion.

       non-zero    An error occurred.

FILES
       /etc/printers.conf      System printer configuration database

       $HOME/.printers	       User-configurable printer database

       ou=printers	       LDAP version of /etc/printers.conf

       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+

NOTES
       URI-style and POSIX-style destination names  (server:destination)  are  treated	as  print
       requests if destination has the same format as an LP-style request-ID. See standards(5).

       Some  print servers send cancelation notification to job owners when their print jobs have
       been cancelled. This notification usually comes in the form of an email message.  Cancela-
       tion notices cannot be disabled on a Solaris server.

       When  IPP is in use, the user is prompted for a passphsrase if the remote print service is
       configured to require authentication.
