lpc(8)				      Easy Software Products				   lpc(8)

NAME
       lpc - line printer control program

SYNOPSIS
       lpc [ command [ parameter(s) ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       lpc  provides  limited control over printer and class queues provided by CUPS. It can also
       be used to query the state of queues.

       If no command is specified on the command-line, lpc will display a prompt and accept  com-
       mands from the standard input.

COMMANDS
       The  lpc  program accepts a subset of commands accepted by the Berkeley lpc program of the
       same name:

       exit
	    Exits the command interpreter.

       help [command]
	    Displays a short help message.

       quit
	    Exits the command interpreter.

       status [queue]
	    Displays the status of one or more printer or class queues.

       ? [command]
	    Display a short help message.

LIMITATIONS
       Since lpc is geared towards the Berkeley printing system, it is impossible to use  lpc  to
       configure  printer or class queues provided by CUPS.  To configure printer or class queues
       you must use the lpadmin(8) command or another CUPS-compatible client with that	function-
       ality.

COMPATIBILITY
       The CUPS version of lpc does not implement all of the standard Berkeley commands.
