           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 (-).
                Forces encryption when connecting to the server.
           -U username
                Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.
                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
           -d destination
                Prints files to the named printer.
           -h hostname[:port]
                Chooses an alternate server.
           -i job-id
                Specifies an existing job to modify.
                Sends an email when the job is completed.
           -n copies
           -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.


           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 landscape
           -o orientation-requested=4
                Prints the job in landscape (rotated 90 degrees).
           -o sides=one-sided
           -o sides=two-sided-long-edge
           -o sides=two-sided-short-edge
                Prints  on  one  or  two sides of the paper. The value "two-sided-
                long-edge" is normally used  when  printing  portrait  (unrotated)
                pages, while "two-sided-short-edge" is used for landscape pages.
           -o fitplot
                Scales the print file to fit on the page.
           -o number-up=2
           -o number-up=4
                Sets the number of characters per inch to use when printing a text
                file. The default is 10.
           -o lpi=N
                Sets the number of lines per inch to  use  when  printing  a  text
                file. The default is 6.
           -o page-bottom=N
           -o page-left=N
           -o page-right=N
           -o page-top=N
                Sets  the page margins when printing text files. The values are in
                points - there are 72 points to the inch.


           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 an image across 4 pages:
               lp -d bar -o scaling=200 filename
           Print a text file with 12 characters per inch, 8 lines per inch, and  a
           1 inch left margin:
               lp -d bar -o cpi=12 -o lpi=8 -o page-left=72 filename


           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).
