       lp - printer output

       lp [ option ...	] [ file ...  ]

       Lp  is a generalized output printing service.  It can be used to queue files for printing,
       check a queue, or kill jobs in a queue.	The options are:

       -d dest
	      Select the destination printer.  If dest is list the currently available	printers.
	      In  the  absence	of the destination is taken from the environment variable LPDEST.
	      Destination is the standard output.  Destination is line	printer  port  on  a  386

       -p proc
	      The  given  processor  is  invoked.  The default processor is which tries to do the
	      right thing for regular text, troff(1) output, or tex(1) output.	If no  processing
	      is desired may be specified.

       -q     Print  the queue for the given destination.  For some devices, include printer sta-

       -k     Kill the job(s) given as subsequent arguments instead of file names for  the  given

       The  remaining  options may be used to affect the output at a given device.  These options
       may not be applicable to all devices.

       -c n   Print n copies.

       -f font
	      Set the font (default

       -H     Suppress printing of header page.

       -i n   Select paper input tray.	n may be a number 0-9, the word man for the  manual  feed
	      slot,  and/or  simplex  or  duplex  to get single or double sided output.  Multiple
	      input tray options may be specified if they are separated by commas.

       -l n   Set the number of lines per page to n.

       -L     Print pages in landscape mode (i.e. turned 90 degrees).

       -m v   Set magnification to v.

       -n n   Print n logical pages per physical page.

       -o list
	      Print only pages whose page numbers appear in the comma-separated list  of  numbers
	      and  ranges.  A range n-m means pages n through m; a range -n means from the begin-
	      ning to page n; a range n- means from page n to the end.

       -r     Reverse the order of page printing.

       -x v   Set the horizontal offset of the print image, measured in inches.

       -y v   Set the vertical offset of the print image, measured in inches.

       eqn paper | troff -ms | lp -dsafari
       Typeset and print a paper containing equations.

       pr -l100 file | lp -l100 -fCW.8
       Print a file in a small font at 100 lines per page.

       lp -dstdout /dev/windows/3/window > doc.ps
       Convert a bitmap to a postscript file.

       Not all options work with all output devices.  Any user can kill any job.  Lp will  accept
       jobs from BSD style lpdaemons but cannot send jobs to such systems.
