       lpr - print files

       lpr  [  -E  ]  [	 -H  server[:port]  ]  [  -U  username ] [ -P destina-
       tion[/instance] ] [ -#  num-copies  [  -h  ]  [	-l  ]  [  -m  ]	 [  -o
       option[=value] ] [ -p] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -C/J/T title ] [ file(s) ]

       lpr  submits  files  for	 printing. Files named on the command line are
       sent to the named printer (or the system default destination if no des-
       tination is specified). If no files are listed on the command-line, lpr
       reads the print file from the standard input.

       The following options are recognized by lpr:

	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -H server[:port]
	    Specifies an alternate server.

       -C "name"

       -J "name"

       -T "name"
	    Sets the job name.

       -P destination[/instance]
	    Prints files to the named printer.

       -U username
	    Specifies an alternate username.

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

	    Disables banner printing. This option is equivalent	 to  "-o  job-

	    Specifies  that the print file is already formatted for the desti-
	    nation and should be sent without filtering. This option is equiv-
	    alent to "-o raw".

	    Send an email on job completion.

       -o option[=value]
	    Sets a job option.

	    Specifies  that  the  print file should be formatted with a shaded
	    header with the date, time, job name, and page number. This option
	    is equivalent to "-o prettyprint" and is only useful when printing
	    text files.

	    Hold job for printing.

	    Specifies that the named  print  files  should  be	deleted	 after
	    printing them.

       The  "c",  "d",	"f",  "g", "i", "n", "t", "v", and "w" options are not
       supported by CUPS and produce a warning message if used.
