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.
