lp submits files for printing or alters a pending job. cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all jobs from the specified destination.


The following options are recognized by lp: -E Forces encryption when connecting to the server. -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 environment variable. -i job-id Specifies an existing job to modify. -m 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. -q priority Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). The default priority is 50. -s 25 September 200/b>Last change: Common UNIX Printing System 1 Easy Software Products lp(1) Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.) -t name Sets the job name. -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. -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 values (1-100) instead of the Solaris values (0-39).
