DESCRIPTION

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

   THE DEFAULT DESTINATION
       CUPS provides many ways to set the default destination. The LPDEST and PRINTER environment
       variables are consulted first.  If neither are set, the  current  default  set  using  the
       lpoptions(1) command is used, followed by the default set using the lpadmin(8) command.

OPTIONS

       The following options are recognized by lp:

       --   Marks the end of options; use this to print a file whose name begins with a dash (-).

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -U username
            Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.

       -c   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[:port]
            Chooses an alternate server.

       -i job-id
            Specifies an existing job to modify.

       -m   Sends an email when the job is completed.

       -n copies
            Sets the number of copies to print.

       -o "name=value [ ... name=value ]"
            Sets one or more job options.  See "COMMON JOB OPTIONS" below.

       -q priority
            Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest).  The default priority is 50.

       -s   Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t "name"
            Sets the job name.

       -H hh:mm

       -H hold

       -H immediate

       -H restart

       -H resume
            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 UTC time value
            (HH:MM) will hold the job until the specified UTC (not local) 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".  The page numbers
            refer to the output pages and not  the  document's  original  pages  -  options  like
            "number-up" can affect the numbering of the pages.

   COMMON JOB OPTIONS
       Aside  from  the  printer-specific  options  reported  by  the  lpoptions(1)  command, the
       following generic options are available:

       -o collate=true
            Prints collated copies.

       -o fit-to-page
            Scales the print file to fit on the page.

       -o job-hold-until=when
            Holds the job until the specified local time.  "when" can be "indefinite" to hold the
            until  released,  "day-time" to print the job between 6am and 6pm local time, "night"
            to print the job between 6pm and 6am local time,  "second-shift"  to  print  the  job
            between  4pm and 12am local time, "third-shift" to print the job between 12am and 8am
            local time, or "weekend" to print the job on Saturday or Sunday.

       -o job-hold-until=hh:mm
            Holds the job until the specified time in hours and minutes UTC.

       -o job-priority=priority
            Set the priority to a value from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest), which influences when a
            job is scheduled for printing.  The default priority is typically 50.

       -o job-sheets=name
            Prints  a  cover  page  (banner)  with the document.  The "name" can be "classified",
            "confidential", "secret", "standard", "topsecret", or "unclassified".

       -o job-sheets=start-name,end-name
            Prints cover pages (banners) with the document.

       -o media=size
            Sets the page size to size. Most printers support  at  least  the  size  names  "a4",
            "letter", and "legal".

       -o mirror
            Mirrors each page.

       -o number-up={2|4|6|9|16}
            Prints 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16 document (input) pages on each output page.

       -o number-up-layout=layout
            Specifies  the  layout of pages with the "number-up" option.  The "layout" string can
            be "btlr", "btrl", "lrbt", "lrtb", "rlbt", "rltb", "tblr", or "tbrl" - the first  two
            letters  determine  the  column  order while the second two letters determine the row
            order.  "bt" is bottom-to-top, "lr" is left-to-right, "rl" is right-to-left, and "tb"
            is top-to-bottom.

       -o orientation-requested=4
            Prints the job in landscape (rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise).

       -o orientation-requested=5
            Prints the job in landscape (rotated 90 degrees clockwise).

       -o orientation-requested=6
            Prints the job in reverse portrait (rotated 180 degrees).

       -o outputorder=reverse
            Prints pages in reverse order.

       -o page-border=border
            Prints  a  border  around  each document page.  "border" is "double", "double-thick",
            "single", or "single-thick".

       -o page-ranges=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".  The page numbers
            refer to the output pages and not  the  document's  original  pages  -  options  like
            "number-up" can affect the numbering of the pages.

       -o sides=one-sided
            Prints on one side of the paper.

       -o sides=two-sided-long-edge
            Prints on both sides of the paper for portrait output.

       -o sides=two-sided-short-edge
            Prints on both sides of the paper for landscape output.

CONFORMING TO

       Unlike  the  System  V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable
       character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#".  Also, printer and class  names  are  not  case-
       sensitive.

       The  -q  option  accepts a different range of values than the Solaris lp command, matching
       the IPP job priority values (1-100, 100 is highest priority) instead of the Solaris values
       (0-39, 0 is highest priority).

EXAMPLES

       Print two copies of a document to the default printer:

           lp -n 2 filename

       Print a double-sided legal document to a printer called "foo":

           lp -d foo -o media=legal -o sides=two-sided-long-edge filename

       Print a presentation document 2-up to a printer called "foo":

           lp -d foo -o number-up=2 filename
