3. DESCRIPTION ▲
foomatic-printjob provides a spooler-independent interface to creating and managing printer jobs and print queues. Note that the first argument changes the mode of the command, as it combines the functionality of several System V-style printing commands.
3.1. OPTIONS ▲
- -s spooler
Explicit spooler type.
- -P queuename
Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead of the default.
- -o option=value
Set option to value
- -o option
Set the switch option
- -# n
Print n copies
- file1 file2 ...
Files to be printed, when no file is given, standard input will be printed
Query the jobs in a queue. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried.
- -Q -a
Query the jobs in all queues. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried.
- -R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
Remove a job from a queue. Using - will remove all jobs.
- -C command [ arguments ]
Execute control commands for queue/job manipulation. The commands are the ones of the BSD "lpc" utility. Use the control command "help" to get a list of supported commands. Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the same commands given under different spoolers do the same thing.
Interactive mode: You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is in doubt about something. Otherwise foomatic-printjob uses auto-detection or quits with an error.
Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler
Show this message or show a list of available options if a queue is specified
