       lpq - show printer queue status


       lpq  [  -E  ]  [  -U  username  ]  [  -h  server[:port] ] [ -P destina-
       tion[/instance] ] [ -a ] [ -l ] [ +interval ]


       lpq shows the current print queue status on the  named  printer.   Jobs
       queued  on the default destination will be shown if no printer or class
       is specified on the command-line.

       The +interval option allows you to continuously report the jobs in  the
       queue  until  the  queue is empty; the list of jobs is shown once every
       interval seconds.


       lpq supports the following options:

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -P destination[/instance]
            Specifies an alternate printer or class name.

       -U username
            Specifies an alternate username.

       -a   Reports jobs on all printers.

       -h server[:port]
            Specifies an alternate server.

       -l   Requests a more verbose (long) reporting format.
