lpc - line printer control program
lpc [ command [ parameter(s) ] ]
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 will display a prompt and accept commands from the standard input.
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.
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.
The CUPS version of lpc does not implement all of the standard Berkeley or LPRng commands.
