 rlp(1M)                                                             rlp(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      rlp - send LP print request to a remote system

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/rlp -I id [-C class] [-J job] [-T title] [-i[numcols]]
           [-k font] [-w num] [-cdfghlnptv] file

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      rlp transfers a spooling request to a remote system to be printed.
      rlp communicates with a spooling daemon on a remote system to transfer
      the spooling request.  Options can be set only on the original system
      (the system where the request originated). The file name must be last.
      Transfers of a remote request use only the -I option and the file.

      This command is intended to be used only by the spool system in
      response to the lp command and should not be invoked directly (see

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      rlp recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

           -I id          The argument id is the request ID.

           -C class       Take the class argument as a job classification
                          for use on the banner page.

           -J job         Take the job argument as the job name to print on
                          the banner page.

           -T title       Use the title argument as the title used by pr
                          instead of the file name (see pr(1)).  -T is
                          ignored unless the -p option is specified.

           -h             Suppress the printing of the banner page.

           -i[numcols]    Cause the output to be indented.  If the next
                          argument is numeric, it is used as the number of
                          blanks to be printed before each line; otherwise,
                          8 characters are printed.

           -k font        Specify a font to be mounted on font position k,
                          where k is from 1 through 4.

           -w num         Use the num argument number as the page width for

      The following single-letter options are used to notify the LP spooler
      that the files are not standard text files.  The spooling system uses
      the appropriate filters (if the option is supported) to print the data
      accordingly.  These options are mutually exclusive.

 rlp(1M)                                                             rlp(1M)

           -c          The files are assumed to contain data produced by

           -d          The files are assumed to contain data from tex (DVI

           -f          Use a filter that interprets the first character of
                       each line as a standard FORTRAN carriage control

           -g          The files are assumed to contain standard plot data
                       as produced by the plot routines.

           -l          Use a filter that suppresses page breaks.

           -n          The files are assumed to contain data from ditroff
                       (device-independent troff).

           -p          Use pr to format the files.

           -t          The files are assumed to contain data from troff (cat
                       phototypesetter commands).

           -v          The files are assumed to contain a raster image for
                       devices such as the Benson Varian.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Some remote line printer models may not support all of these options.
      Options not supported are silently ignored.

      When rlp is transferring a request that originated on another system,
      only the -I option and the file is used.  This saves rlp from having
      to set the various options multiple times.  Specifying unused options
      does not produce an error.

 AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
      rlp was developed by the University of California, Berkeley and HP.
