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

       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 systems 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 effect.

       -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  environ­
            ment 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.

       -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 contain a list of numbers and  ranges  (#-#)
            separated by commas (e.g. 1,3-5,16).


       Unlike  the  System V printing system, CUPS allows printer
       names to contain 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 val­
       ues (1-100) instead of the Solaris values (0-39).


       Administrators wishing to prevent  unauthorized  cancella­
       tion of jobs via the -u option should password-protect the
       /jobs location in cupsd.conf(5).
