If lpstat does not show anything, you may be out of luck. Some printers have very big buffers. The printer may have sucked in the entire file. There may be some front panel options on the printer itself. If not, power off the printer. That should stop it from printing.

cubicle^dweller,

I had the same problem with my printer. It required me to shut the printer off and reboot the system. That cleared just about everything that was buffered.
