lpstat [ -E ] [ -a [ destination(s) ] ] [ -c [ class(es) ] [ -d ] [ -h server ] [ -l ] [
-o [ destination(s) ] ] [ -p [ printer(s) ] ] [ -r ] [ -R ] [ -s ] [ -t ] [ -u [ user(s) ]

lpstat displays status information about the current classes, jobs, and printers. When run
with no arguments, lpstat will list jobs queued by the user. Other options include:
Forces encryption when connecting to the server.
Shows the accepting state of printer queues. If no printers are specified then all
printers are listed.
Shows the printer classes and the printers that belong to them. If no classes are
specified then all classes are listed.
Shows the current default destination.
Specifies the CUPS server to communicate with.
Shows a long listing of printers, classes, or jobs.
Shows the jobs queue on the specified destinations. If no destinations are specified
all jobs are shown.
Shows the printers and whether or not they are enabled for printing. If no printers
are specified then all printers are listed.
Shows whether or not the CUPS server is running.
Shows the ranking of print jobs.
Shows a status summary, including the default destination, a list of classes and
their member printers, and a list of printers and their associated devices. This is
equivalent to using the "-d", "-c", and "-p" options.
Shows all status information. This is equivalent to using the "-r", "-d", "-c", "-d",
"-v", "-a", "-p", and "-o" options.
Shows a list of print jobs queued by the specified users. If no users are specified,
lists the jobs queued by the current user.

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 "-h" option is not a standard System V option.
The Solaris "-f", "-P", and "-S" options are silently ignored.
The "-W" option is unique to CUPS.
