       foomatic-printjob - manage printer jobs in a spooler-independent fashion


       foomatic-printjob  [  -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -o option1=value1 -o option2 ... ] [
       -i ] [ file1 file2 ... ]

       foomatic-printjob -Q [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ -a ] [ user1 user2 ... ]

       foomatic-printjob -R [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]

       foomatic-printjob -C [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] command [ arguments ]

       foomatic-printjob -S [ -s spooler ] [ -i ]

       foomatic-printjob -h [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ]


       foomatic-printjob provides  a  spooler-independent  interface  to  creating  and  managing
       printer  jobs  and  print  queues.   Note  that the first argument changes the mode of the
       command, as it combines the functionality of several System V-style printing commands.

       -sspooler Explicit spooler type.

                 Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead of the default.

                 Set option to value

       -ooption  Set the switch option

       -#n       Print n copies

       file1  file2  ...
                 Files to be printed, when no file is given, standard input will be printed

       -Q        Query the jobs in a queue.  If a list of users is specified, only  those  users'
                 jobs will be queried.

       -Q -a     Query  the  jobs  in  all  queues.   If a list of users is specified, only those
                 users' jobs will be queried.

       -R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
                 Remove a job from a queue.  Using - will remove all jobs.

       -C command [ arguments ]
                 Execute control commands for queue/job manipulation.  The commands are the  ones
                 of  the  BSD  "lpc"  utility.  Use  the  control command "help" to get a list of
                 supported commands. Note: the amount of commands varies with  the  spooler,  but
                 the same commands given under different spoolers do the same thing.

       -i        Interactive  mode:  You  will  be  asked  if foomatic-printjob is in doubt about
                 something. Otherwise foomatic-printjob uses  auto-detection  or  quits  with  an

       -S        Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler

       -h        Show this message or show a list of available options if a queue is specified
