       lpr - print files

       lpr  [  -E ] [ -P destination ] [ -# num-copies [ -l ] [ -o option ] [ -p] [ -r ] [ -C/J/T
       title ] [ file(s) ]

       lpr submits files for printing. Files named on the command line	are  sent  to  the  named
       printer	(or  the  system 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 following options are recognized by lpr:

	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -P destination
	    Prints files to the named printer.

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

       -C name
	    Sets the job name.

       -J name
	    Sets the job name.

       -T name
	    Sets the job name.

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

       -o option
	    Sets a job option.

	    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 "-oprettyprint" and  is
	    only useful when printing text files.

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

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