       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 job-sheets=name
            Prints  a  cover  page  (banner)  with the document.  The "name" can be "classified",
            "confidential", "secret", "standard", "topsecret", or "unclassified".

       -o media=size
            Sets the page size to size. Most printers support  at  least  the  size  names  "a4",
            "letter", and "legal".

       -o number-up={2|4|6|9|16}
            Prints 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16 document (input) pages on each output page.

       -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 print-quality=3

       -o print-quality=4

       -o print-quality=5
            Specifies the output quality - draft (3), normal (4), or best (5).

       -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
