       lpr - print files


       lpr  [  -E  ] [ -H server[:port] ] [ -U username ] [ -P destination[/instance] ] [ -# num-
       copies [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -m ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -p ] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -C title ]  [  -J
       title ] [ -T title ] [ file(s) ]


       lpr  submits  files  for  printing.  Files named on the command line are sent to the named
       printer or the default destination if no destination is specified.  If no files are listed
       on the command-line, lpr reads the print file from the standard input.

       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.


       The following options are recognized by lpr:

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -H server[:port]
            Specifies an alternate server.

       -C "name"

       -J "name"

       -T "name"
            Sets the job name/title.

       -P destination[/instance]
            Prints files to the named printer.

       -U username
            Specifies an alternate username.

       -# copies
            Sets the number of copies to print.

       -h   Disables banner printing. This option is equivalent to -o job-sheets=none.

       -l   Specifies  that the print file is already formatted for the destination and should be
            sent without filtering.  This option is equivalent to -o raw.

       -m   Send an email on job completion.

       -o option[=value]
            Sets a job option.  See "COMMON JOB OPTIONS" below.

       -p   Specifies that the print file should be formatted with a shaded header with the date,
            time,  job name, and page number.  This option is equivalent to -o prettyprint and is
            only useful when printing text files.

       -q   Hold job for printing.

       -r   Specifies that the named print files should be deleted after submitting them.

       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.


       The -c, -d, -f, -g, -i, -n, -t, -v, and -w options are not supported by CUPS and produce a
       warning message if used.


       Print two copies of a document to the default printer:

           lpr -# 2 filename

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

           lpr -P foo -o media=legal -o sides=two-sided-long-edge filename

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

           lpr -P foo -o number-up=2 filename
