NAME
       lpstat - print cups status information

SYNOPSIS
       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) ]
       ] [ -v [ printer(s) ] [ -W [ which-jobs ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       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:

       -E
	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -a [printer(s)]
	    Shows the accepting state of printer queues. If no printers are  specified	then  all
	    printers are listed.

       -c [class(es)]
	    Shows  the	printer  classes  and the printers that belong to them. If no classes are
	    specified then all classes are listed.

       -d
	    Shows the current default destination.

       -h server
	    Specifies the CUPS server to communicate with.

       -l
	    Shows a long listing of printers, classes, or jobs.

       -o [destination(s)]
	    Shows the jobs queue on the specified destinations. If no destinations are	specified
	    all jobs are shown.

       -p [printer(s)]
	    Shows  the	printers and whether or not they are enabled for printing. If no printers
	    are specified then all printers are listed.

       -r
	    Shows whether or not the CUPS server is running.

       -R
	    Shows the ranking of print jobs.

       -s
	    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.

       -t
	    Shows all status information. This is equivalent to using the "-r", "-d", "-c", "-d",
	    "-v", "-a", "-p", and "-o" options.

       -u [user(s)]
	    Shows  a list of print jobs queued by the specified users. If no users are specified,
	    lists the jobs queued by the current user.

       -v [printer(s)]
	    Shows the printers and what device they are attached to. If no printers are specified
	    then all printers are listed.

       -W [which-jobs]
	    Specifies which jobs to show, completed or not-completed (the default).

COMPATIBILITY
       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.
