rlpq - remote line printer queue examination program
rlpq [-lmqNV] [-Hprinthost] [-Pprinter] [-Xproxyhost] [--debug]
[--timeout=seconds] [--port=port] [ job # ... ] [ username ... ]
rlpq uses TCP/IP to examine print queues for printers anywhere on a
network. Unlike lpq, it does not require that the remote printers be
explicitly known to the local system (traditionally through
/etc/printcap), and thus is considerably more flexible and requires
rlpq can be used anywhere a traditional lpq might be used, and is
backwards compatible with traditional BSD lpq. If rlpq is invoked as
lpq, it preserves all known lpq semantics.
rlpq can be set up, installed, and used in the same two ways as rlpr(1)
(that is, either with or without the rlprd(8) proxy daemon). Please
see rlpr(1) for details, and to see whether you will need to use the
rlprd(8) proxy daemon or not.
Print gobs of debugging information.
Don’t try to bind to privileged port before connecting to lpd.
Please see the CONFIGURING A PROXY section in rlpr(1) for
information on use of this option.
Select an alternate port (instead of 7290) to connect to, if
using rlprd. Usually not needed.
Select the host to print to (used with -P).
Instead of using -H, one can specify the hostname directly
including it with the printer name with the printer@hostname
-P, --printer=printername, --queue=printername
Select the printer to print to (used with -H).
-X, --proxy=proxyhost, --proxyhost=proxyhost
Select the proxy host to use, if necessary.
Set the inactivity timer. If the connection hangs for more than
seconds seconds, then rlpq will give up. Use the special value
‘-1’ to wait forever. Default timeout is 3 seconds.
Print version and exit.
Produce a more detailed report.
List only the jobs belonging to you.
-q, --quiet, --silent
Quiet mode - stay quiet (except for fatal errors). When this
flag is set, rlpq’s return value indicates whether there are any
items in the specified queue that meet the specified criteria (a
return value of zero indicates success).
The following environment variables are used by rlpq:
Specifies the default host’s queue to examine.
PRINTER or LPDEST
Specifies the default printer to check on the host.
First PRINTER is consulted, then LPDEST.
Note that one can also specify the host to examine by setting
printer to be printer@hostname. This may be more convenient
than setting RLPR_PRINTHOST, but will confuse the traditional
BSD print commands.
Specifies a proxy host to use, if necessary.

BUGS / LIMITATIONS
Due to the dynamic nature of print queues, it is possible that the
actual state of the queue may have changed between the time the
snapshot was generated and the output was produced.
