DESCRIPTION

       lp submits files for printing or alters a pending job.  Use a filename  of  "-"  to  force
       printing from the standard input.

   THE DEFAULT DESTINATION
       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.

OPTIONS

       The following options are recognized by lp:

       --   Marks the end of options; use this to print a file whose name begins with a dash (-).

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -U username
            Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.

       -c   This option is provided for backwards-compatibility only. On systems that support it,
            this option forces the print  file  to  be  copied  to  the  spool  directory  before
            printing.   In  CUPS,  print files are always sent to the scheduler via IPP which has
            the same effect.

       -d destination
            Prints files to the named printer.

       -h hostname[:port]
            Chooses an alternate server.

       -i job-id
            Specifies an existing job to modify.

       -m   Sends an email when the job is completed.

       -n copies
            Sets the number of copies to print.

       -o "name=value [ ... name=value ]"
            Sets one or more job options.  See "COMMON JOB OPTIONS" below.

       -q priority
            Sets the job priority from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest).  The default priority is 50.

       -s   Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t "name"
            Sets the job name.

       -H hh:mm

       -H hold

       -H immediate

       -H restart

       -H resume
            Specifies when the job should be printed.  A value of immediate will print  the  file
            immediately,  a  value  of  hold will hold the job indefinitely, and a UTC time value
            (HH:MM) will hold the job until the specified UTC (not local) time.  Use a  value  of
            resume  with  the -i option to resume a held job.  Use a value of restart with the -i
            option to restart a completed job.

       -P page-list
            Specifies which pages to print in the document.  The  list  can  contain  a  list  of
            numbers  and  ranges  (#-#)  separated by commas, e.g., "1,3-5,16".  The page numbers
            refer to the output pages and not  the  document's  original  pages  -  options  like
            "number-up" can affect the numbering of the pages.

   COMMON JOB OPTIONS
       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.

CONFORMING TO

       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  contain  any  printable
       character  except  SPACE,  TAB,  "/", or "#".  Also, printer and class names are not case-
       sensitive.

       The -q option accepts a different range of values than the Solaris  lp  command,  matching
       the IPP job priority values (1-100, 100 is highest priority) instead of the Solaris values
       (0-39, 0 is highest priority).

EXAMPLES

       Print two copies of a document to the default printer:

           lp -n 2 filename

       Print a double-sided legal document to a printer called "foo":

           lp -d foo -o media=legal -o sides=two-sided-long-edge filename

       Print a presentation document 2-up to a printer called "bar":

           lp -d bar -o number-up=2 filename
