       lpc - line printer control program

       /etc/lpc [ command [ argument...	 ] ]

       The  program  is used by the system administrator to control the opera‐
       tion of the line printer system.	 For each line printer with  an	 entry
       in the file, may be used to start/stop several different functions.

       Without	any  arguments,	 prompts for commands from the standard input.
       If arguments are supplied, interprets the first argument as  a  command
       and the remaining arguments as parameters to the command.  The standard
       input may be redirected causing to read commands from file.   The  com‐
       mands  and  their parameters are shown below.  Commands may be abbrevi‐
