NAME

lp -- front-end to the print spooler

SYNOPSIS

lp [-cs] [-o option] [-d printer] [-n num] [name ...]

DESCRIPTION

The lp utility is a front-end to the print spooler as required by the IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') specification. It effectively invokes lpr(1) with the proper set of arguments. It generally prints the named files on the destination printer. The following options are available: -c Make the lp command exit only after further access to any of the input files is no longer required. The application can then safely delete or modify the files without affecting the output operation. -d dest Specify a particular printer. If no -d is provided on the com- mand line, the contents of the environment variables LPDEST or PRINTER (with this precedence) are taken as the destination printer. -n num Specify that num copies of each of the named files shall be printed. -o option Printer specific options. Not supported, provided only as a com- patibility option for SVR. -s Silent operation. Not supported, provided only as a compatibil- ity option for Version 2 of the Single UNIX Specification (``SUSv2'').

ENVIRONMENT

As described above, the variables LPDEST and PRINTER are examined to select the destination printer.

STANDARDS

The lp command is expected to comply with the IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') specification.

AUTHORS

This implementation of the lp command has been written by Jorg Wunsch.

BUGS

The IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') specification does not provide any means to print non-text files. It rather requires the files to be printed to be text files limited to reasonable line lengths and printable characters. DragonFly 5.3 January 22, 1995 DragonFly 5.3 lp(1) Apple Inc. lp(1)

NAME

lp - print files

SYNOPSIS

lp [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -c ] [ -d destination[/instance] ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -m ] [ -n num-copies ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -q priority ] [ -s ] [ -t title ] [ -H handling ] [ -P page-list ] [ -- ] [ file(s) ] lp [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -c ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -i job-id ] [ -n num-copies ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -q priority ] [ -t title ] [ -H handling ] [ -P page-list ]

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, fol- lowed 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 sys- tems 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 con- tain 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 collate=true Prints collated copies. -o fit-to-page Scales the print file to fit on the page. -o job-hold-until=when Holds the job until the specified local time. "when" can be "indefinite" to hold the until released, "day-time" to print the job between 6am and 6pm local time, "night" to print the job between 6pm and 6am local time, "second-shift" to print the job between 4pm and 12am local time, "third-shift" to print the job between 12am and 8am local time, or "weekend" to print the job on Saturday or Sunday. -o job-hold-until=hh:mm Holds the job until the specified time in hours and minutes UTC. -o job-priority=priority Set the priority to a value from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest), which influences when a job is scheduled for printing. The default priority is typically 50. -o job-sheets=name Prints a cover page (banner) with the document. The "name" can be "classified", "confidential", "secret", "standard", "topsecret", or "unclassified". -o job-sheets=start-name,end-name Prints cover pages (banners) with the document. -o media=size Sets the page size to size. Most printers support at least the size names "a4", "letter", and "legal". -o mirror Mirrors each page. -o number-up={2|4|6|9|16} Prints 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16 document (input) pages on each output page. -o number-up-layout=layout Specifies the layout of pages with the "number-up" option. The "layout" string can be "btlr", "btrl", "lrbt", "lrtb", "rlbt", "rltb", "tblr", or "tbrl" - the first two letters determine the column order while the second two letters determine the row order. "bt" is bottom-to-top, "lr" is left-to-right, "rl" is right-to- left, and "tb" is top-to-bottom. -o orientation-requested=4 Prints the job in landscape (rotated 90 degrees counter-clock- wise). -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 outputorder=reverse Prints pages in reverse order. -o page-border=border Prints a border around each document page. "border" is "double", "double-thick", "single", or "single-thick". -o page-ranges=page-list Specifies which pages to print in the document. The list can con- tain 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. -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 con- tain 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 "foo": lp -d foo -o number-up=2 filename
