NAME

       lpc - line printer control program

SYNOPSIS

       lpc [ command [ parameter(s) ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       lpc  provides limited control over printer and class queues provided by
       CUPS. It can also be used to query the state of queues.

       If no command is specified on the  command-line,  lpc  will  display  a
       prompt and accept commands from the standard input.

COMMANDS

       The  lpc  program accepts a subset of commands accepted by the Berkeley
       lpc program of the same name:

       exit
            Exits the command interpreter.

       help [command]

       ? [command]
            Displays a short help message.

       quit
            Exits the command interpreter.

       status [queue]
            Displays the status of one or more printer or class queues.

LIMITATIONS

       Since lpc is  geared  towards  the  Berkeley  printing  system,  it  is
       impossible  to use lpc to configure printer or class queues provided by
       CUPS.  To configure printer or class queues you must use the lpadmin(8)
       command or another CUPS-compatible client with that functionality.

COMPATIBILITY

       The CUPS version of lpc does not implement all of the standard Berkeley
       or LPRng commands.
