NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       lp, cancel - Sends or cancels a printing request

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       lp  [-cmsw]  [-A  options]  [-o  option]  [-d printer] [-n
       copies] [-t title] [file...]

       cancel [request_ID...] printer...

       cancel request_ID... [printer...]

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Interfaces documented on this reference  page  conform  to
       industry standards as follows:

       lp: XCU5.0

       cancel:  XCU5.0

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
 about industry standards and associated tags.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Options for the lp command can appear in any order and can
       be mixed with filenames.

       The  cancel  command has no options.  [Tru64 UNIX]  Specifies
 one or more country-specific options.  See lpr(1) for
       details about these options.  Makes copies of the files to
       be printed immediately  when  lp  is  invoked.   Normally,
       files  are  not  copied, but are linked whenever possible.
       If the -c option is not given, be careful  not  to  remove
       any  of the files before the request is finished printing.
       Note also that in the absence of the -c option any changes
       made  to  the  named  files after the request is made, but
       before it is printed, are reflected in the printed output.
       Selects  printer  as  the  device to do the printing (also
       known as the printing destination).  Under certain  conditions
 (printer unavailability, file space limitations, and
       so on),  requests  for  specific  destinations  cannot  be
       accepted.   By  default,  printer is taken from the LPDEST
       environment variable if it is set.  Otherwise, the PRINTER
       environment  variable  or  a  default  destination, if one
       exists, for the system is used.   Destination  names  vary
       between  systems.  (See the lpq(1) and lpstat(1) reference
       pages.)  Sends mail  (see  the  mailx(1)  reference  page)
       after  the files are printed.  By default, no mail is sent
       upon normal completion of the print request.  Prints  number
  copies  (default of 1).  This option is recognized as
       valid option by the command-line parser, but is  not  supported
 on a Tru64 UNIX system.  On other systems, multiple
       -o options can be used  to  specify  printer-dependent  or
       class-dependent  options.   Suppresses  messages  from lp,
       such as "request id is ...".  Prints title on  the  banner
       page  of the output.  Functions like -m (for compatibility

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies one or more files to  be  printed.   Cancel  the
       request  with the request ID.  Cancel all requests made by
       you with that printer as the destination.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The lp command sends the specified  files  and  associated
       information  (collectively  called  a  request)  to a line
       printer for printing.  The cancel command cancels printing

       The  lp  command  associates a unique ID with each request
       and prints it on the standard output.  If you do not specify
  a  file, or specify a - (dash) in place of a file, lp
       accepts standard input at this point in the list of files.

       The cancel command cancels printer requests made by the lp
       or lpr command  (see  lpr(1)).   You  can  specify  either
       request_ID, to cancel the request with that request ID, or
       printer, to cancel all requests  made  by  you  with  that
       printer  as  the  destination.  (If you are operating with
       superuser authority, all requests to that printer are canceled,
  including  those  of  other  users.)   A specified
       request is canceled even if it is currently printing,  and
       the  printer is freed to print the next available request.
       The cancel command is marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.

       You can also use the request ID to find the status of  the
       request. (See the lpq(1) and lpstat(1) reference pages.)

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following exit values are returned by both the cancel
       and  lp  commands:  Successful   completion.    An   error


       The  following  environment variables affect the execution
       of lp and cancel: Provides a default value for the  internationalization
  variables that are unset or null. If LANG
       is unset or null, the corresponding value from the default
       locale  is used.  If any of the internationalization variables
 contain an invalid setting, the utility  behaves  as
       if  none  of  the variables had been defined.  If set to a
       non-empty string value, overrides the values  of  all  the
       other   internationalization  variables.   Determines  the
       locale for the interpretation of  sequences  of  bytes  of
       text  data  as  characters  (for  example,  single-byte as
       opposed to multi-byte characters  in  arguments).   Determines
 the locale for the format and contents of diagnostic
       messages written to standard error.  Determines the format
       of  date and time strings displayed in the banner.  Determines
 the output device destination if the  -d  option  is
       not  used with the lp command.  Determines the location of
       message catalogues  for  the  processing  of  LC_MESSAGES.
       Determines  the output device destination if the -d option
       is not used with lp command  and  the  LPDEST  environment
       variable is not set.
