NAME
lpq - display the content of a print queue SYNOPSIS
/usr/ucb/lpq [-P destination] [-l] [+ [interval]] [request-ID...] [user]... DESCRIPTION
The lpq utility displays the information about the contents of a print queue. A print queue is comprised of print requests that are waiting in the process of being printed. lpq displays the following information to the standard output: o the username of the person associated with a print request, o the position of a print request in the print queue, o the name of file or files comprising a print request, o the job number of a print request, and o the size of the file requested by a print request. File size is reported in bytes. Normally, only as much information as will fit on one line is displayed. If the name of the input file associated with a print request is not available, the input file field indicates the standard input. 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: -l Displays information in long format. Long format includes the name of the host from which a print request originated in the display. -P destination Displays information about printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)) . Specify destination using atomic, URI-style (scheme://endpoint), or POSIX-style (server:destination) names. See printers.conf(4) for information regarding destina- tion names. + [interval] Displays information at specific time intervals. Stops displaying information when the print queue is empty. Clears the screen before reporting displaying the print queue. Specify interval as the number of seconds between displays. If interval is not specified only executes once. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: request-ID The job number associated with a print request. user The name of the user about whose jobs lpq reports information. Specify user as a valid username. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred. FILES

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 destinations (destination). Specifying request-ID with destination cancels request-ID on destination. Specifying only the destination cancels the current print request on destination. If desti- nation 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 cancel 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 destination is not specified, cancel cancels the requested print request on all destinations. Specify destination using atomic, URI-style (scheme://endpoint), or POSIX-style (server:destination), names. See Notes for informa- tion regarding using URI-style or POSIX-style destination names with cancel. 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 printers.conf.byname NIS version of /etc/printers.conf printers.org_dir NIS+ version of /etc/printers.conf ATTRIBUTES

lp(1), lpq(1B), lpr(1B), lprm(1B), lpstat(1), lpadmin(1M), nsswitch.conf(4), printers(4), printers.conf(4), attributes(5), standards(5) 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. Cancelation 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.
