rmprinter - remove a printer from the System V spooling system
rmprinter [-x <dest printer>] [-f] printer ...
rmprinter removes a printer from the System V printer spooling system.
Normally, if print jobs are pending in the print queue, rmprinter will
not remove the printer. If the -f flag is specified, the printer will be
removed regardless of pending print jobs. In this case the pending print
jobs will not be printed. If the -x flag is specified, any pending print
jobs will be moved to dest printer and then the printer will be removed.
More than one printer can be specified for removal at one time. If an
error occurs while removing one of the printers, the program will
continue attempting to remove all printers specified but will exit with a
status indicating an error.
