       lp submits files for printing or alters a pending job. Use  a  filename
       of "-" to force printing from the standard input.

       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
	    Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100.

       -o "name=value [name=value ...]"
	    Sets one or more job options.

       -q priority
	    Sets the job priority  from	 1  (lowest)  to  100  (highest).  The
	    default priority is 50.

	    Do not report the resulting job IDs (silent mode.)

       -t "name"
	    Sets the job name.

       -u username
	    Submits jobs as username.

       -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 time value (HH:MM) will hold the job until the
	    specified 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.

       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 scaling=number
	    Scales image files to use up to number percent of the page.	  Val‐
	    ues	 greater  than	100  cause the image file to be printed across
	    multiple pages.

       -o cpi=N
	    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).
