       lp  submits  files for printing or alters a pending job. Use a filename
       of "-" to force printing from the standard input.

       cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all  jobs
       from the specified destination.


       The following options are recognized by lp:

            Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

            This  option is provided for backwards-compatibility only. On sys-
            tems that support it, this option forces  the  print  file  to  be
            copied  to  the  spool  directory  before printing. In CUPS, print
            files are always sent to the scheduler via IPP which has the  same

       -d destination
            Prints files to the named printer.

       -h hostname
            Specifies the print server hostname. The default is "localhost" or
            the value of the CUPS_SERVER environment variable.

       -i job-id
            Specifies an existing job to modify.

            Send email when the job is completed (not supported CUPS 1.1.)

       -n copies
            Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100.

       -o option
            Sets a job option.

       -q priority
            Sets the job priority  from  1  (lowest)  to  100  (highest).  The
            default priority is 50.

            Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t name
            Sets the job name.

       -u username
            Cancels jobs owned by username.

            Report the resulting job IDs.

       -H handling
            Specifies  when  the  job  should be printed. A value of immediate
            will print the file immediately, a value of hold will hold the job
            indefinitely, and a time value (HH:MM) will hold the job until the
            specified time. Use a value of resume with the -i option to resume
            a  held job.  Use a value of restart with the -i option to restart
            a completed job.

       -P page-list
            Specifies which pages to print in the document. The list can  con-
            tain  a list of numbers and ranges (#-#) separated by commas (e.g.

       The interpretation of options may be cancelled by the option `--'. This
       will  allow  the  use  of  file names that begin with a dash (`-'). For
       example: lp -- -filename


       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  con-
       tain  any  printable  character except SPACE and TAB. Also, printer and
       class names are not case-sensitive.

       The "m" option is not functional in CUPS 1.1.

       The "q" option accepts a different range of values than the Solaris  lp
       command,  matching  the  IPP job priority values (1-100) instead of the
       Solaris values (0-39).


       Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via
       the   -u   option   should   password-protect  the  /jobs  location  in
