       lp - print files
       cancel - cancel jobs

       lp  [  -E ] [ -c ] [ -d destination ] [ -h server ] [ -m ] [ -n num-copies [ -o option ] [
       -q priority ] [ -s ] [ -t title ] [ -H handling ] [ -P page-list ] [ file(s) ]
       lp [ -E ] [ -c ] [ -h server ] [ -i job-id ] [ -n num-copies [ -o option ] [ -q priority ]
       [ -t title ] [ -H handling ] [ -P page-list ]
       cancel [ -a ] [ -h server ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]

       lp submits files for printing or alters a pending job.

       cancel  cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all jobs from the specified

       The following options are recognized by lp:

	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

	    This option is provided for backwards-compatibility only. On systems that support it,
	    this  option  forces the print file to be copied to the spool directory before print-
	    ing. In CUPS, print files are always sent to the scheduler via IPP which has the same

       -d destination
	    Prints files to the named printer.

       -h hostname
	    Specifies  the  print server hostname. The default is "localhost" or the value of the
	    CUPS_SERVER environment variable.

       -i job-id
	    Specifies an existing job to modify.

	    Send email when the job is completed (not supported CUPS 1.1.)

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

       -o option
	    Sets a job option.

       -q priority
	    Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). The default priority is 50.

	    Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t name
	    Sets the job name.

       -H handling
	    Specifies when the job should be printed. A value of immediate will  print	the  file
	    immediately, a value of hold will hold the job indefinitely, and a time value (HH:MM)
	    will hold the job until the specified time. Use a value of resume with the -i  option
	    to resume a held job.

       -P page-list
	    Specifies  which  pages to print in the document. The list can contain a list of num-
	    bers and ranges (#-#) separated by commas (e.g. 1,3-5,16).

       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  contain  any	printable
       character except SPACE and TAB. Also, printer and class names are not case-sensitive.

       The "m" option is not functional in CUPS 1.1.

       The  "q"  option accepts a different range of values than the Solaris lp command, matching
       the IPP job priority values (1-100) instead of the Solaris values (0-39).
