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

       -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.

       Aside  from  the  printer-specific  options  reported  by  the  lpoptions(1)  command, the
       following generic options are available:

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

       -o orientation-requested=4
            Prints the job in landscape (rotated 90 degrees).

       -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.

       -o fit-to-page
            Scales the print file to fit on the page.

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


       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-

       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).


       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 "foo":

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