NAME

       cancel - cancel jobs

SYNOPSIS

       cancel  [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u username ] [ -x ] [ id ]
       [ destination ] [ destination-id ]

DESCRIPTION

       The cancel command cancels print  jobs.   If  no  destination  or  id  is  specified,  the
       currently printing job on the default destination is canceled.

OPTIONS

       The following options are recognized by cancel:

       -a   Cancel  all jobs on the named destination, or all jobs on all destinations if none is
            provided.

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -h hostname[:port]
            Specifies an alternate server.

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

       -u username
            Cancels jobs owned by username.

       -x   Deletes job data files in addition to canceling.

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.

EXAMPLES

       Cancel the current print job:

           cancel

       Cancel job "myprinter-42":

           cancel myprinter-42

       Cancel all jobs:

           cancel -a

NOTES

       Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of  jobs  via  the  -u  option
       should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs operations in cupsd.conf(5).
