Try studying this UNIX command:


and this file:


Your man pages on these commands will be a great asset.

There are other associated commands, including:


/etc/printcap printer description file
/var/spool/* spool directories
/var/spool/*/minfree minimum free space to leave
/dev/lp* line printer devices
/dev/printer socket for local requests
/etc/hosts.equiv lists machine names allowed printer access
/etc/hosts.lpd lists machine names allowed printer access, but not
under same administrative control.

lpc(8), pac(1), lpr(1), lpq(1), lprm(1), syslog(3), printcap(5)
