       cupsd - cups scheduler


       cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ]


       cupsd  is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based
       upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1.  If  no  options  are
       specified  on  the  command-line  then  the  default configuration file
       /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.


       -c config-file
            Uses the named configuration file.

            Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run  in  the  back-
            ground as a "daemon".

            Run  cupsd  in the foreground but detach the process from the con-
            trolling terminal and current directory. This is useful  for  run-
            ning cupsd from init(8).

            Shows the program usage.

            This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8).

            Test the configuration file for syntax errors.


       cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations.
       It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.


       backend(7), classes.conf(5),  cups-deviced(8),  cups-driverd(8),  cups-
       lpd(8),    cups-polld(8),    cupsd.conf(5),    filter(7),   launchd(8),
       mime.convs(5), mime.types(5), printers.conf(5),
