Question Help moving print jubs to another queue

I would like to know how to move jobs from one print queue to another. I'm learning a system based on SCO Unix and I found a way to assign a good printer queue to a damaged printer but it's only good for future jobs. The jobs that hit the queue of the bad printer are stuck in there. Is there a way to move them to another printer?

Thanks,

Jerry

I don't know SCO. But most versions of unix have a lpmove command that does this. Try "man lpmove" to see if it's available on your system.

For SCO related documentation go to This Link and select either of the Library links relative to your OS revision.

Hope that helps.

indeed you can use what perderabo suggested.
Try:
$ /usr/lib/lpmove sc2 sc1

*sc2 & sc1 is the print printer name

$ /usr/lib/accept sc1

as you succesfully moved the print job from one printer queue to another accept the printer.

Give a try.
