NAME

       lpc - line printer control program


SYNOPSIS

       lpc [ command [ parameter(s) ] ]


DESCRIPTION

       lpc  provides limited control over printer and class queues provided by
       CUPS. It can also be used to query the state of queues.

       If no command is specified on the command-line, lpc displays  a  prompt
       and accepts commands from the standard input.

   COMMANDS
       The  lpc  program accepts a subset of commands accepted by the Berkeley
       lpc program of the same name:

       exit Exits the command interpreter.

       help [command]

       ? [command]
            Displays a short help message.

       quit Exits the command interpreter.

       status [queue]
            Displays the status of one or more printer or class queues.


NOTES

       Since lpc is geared towards the Berkeley printing system, it is  impos-
       sible to use lpc to configure printer or class queues provided by CUPS.
       To configure printer or class queues you must use the  lpadmin(8)  com-
       mand or another CUPS-compatible client with that functionality.
