cupsd - common unix printing system daemon
cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ]
cupsd is the scheduler for the Common UNIX Printing System. It implements a printing sys-
tem based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 1.1. If no options are specified
on the command-line then the default configuration file (usually /etc/cups/cupsd.conf)
will be used.
The -f option forces cupsd to run in the foreground; the default is to run in the back-
ground as a "daemon".
The -F option forces cupsd to run in the foreground but detaches the process from the con-
trolling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init.
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/1.1 attributes and operations. It also implements
several CUPS-specific administation operations.
