This information (called a confi- guration report) is displayed to the standard output. See printers(4) and printers.conf(4) for information about the printer configuration databases. lpget displays a configuration report for all keys for the specified destination or destinations by default. Use the -k option to display a configuration report for specific keys. Use the list operand to display a configuration report for all configured destinations.
