NAME
       lpstat - print cups status information

SYNOPSIS
       lpstat [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -l ] [ -W which-
       jobs ] [ -a [ destination(s) ] ] [ -c [ class(es) ] ] [ -d  ]  [	 -o  [
       destination(s)  ] ] [ -p [ printer(s) ] ] [ -r ] [ -R ] [ -s ] [ -t ] [
       -u [ user(s) ] ] [ -v [ printer(s) ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       lpstat displays status information about the current classes, jobs, and
       printers.  When	run with no arguments, lpstat will list jobs queued by
       the current user.

OPTIONS
       The lpstat command supports the following options:

       -E
	    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -R
	    Shows the ranking of print jobs.

       -U username
	    Specifies an alternate username.

       -W which-jobs
	    Specifies which jobs to  show,  completed  or  not-completed  (the
	    default).  This option must appear before the -o option and/or any
	    printer names, otherwise the default (not-completed) value will be
	    used in the request to the scheduler.

       -a [printer(s)]
	    Shows  the	accepting  state of printer queues. If no printers are
	    specified then all printers are listed.

       -c [class(es)]
	    Shows the printer classes and the printers that  belong  to	 them.
	    If no classes are specified then all classes are listed.

       -d
	    Shows the current default destination.

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

       -l
	    Shows a long listing of printers, classes, or jobs.

       -o [destination(s)]
	    Shows the jobs queue on the specified destinations. If no destina-
	    tions are specified all jobs are shown.

       -p [printer(s)]
	    Shows the printers and whether or not they are enabled for	print-
	    ing. If no printers are specified then all printers are listed.

       -r
	    Shows whether the CUPS server is running.

       -s
	    Shows  a status summary, including the default destination, a list
	    of classes and their member printers, and a list of	 printers  and
	    their  associated  devices.	 This is equivalent to using the "-d",
	    "-c", and "-v" options.

       -t
	    Shows all status information. This	is  equivalent	to  using  the
	    "-r", "-d", "-c", "-v", "-a", "-p", and "-o" options.

       -u [user(s)]
	    Shows  a  list  of print jobs queued by the specified users. If no
	    users are specified, lists the jobs queued by the current user.

       -v [printer(s)]
	    Shows the printers and what device they are	 attached  to.	If  no
	    printers are specified then all printers are listed.

COMPATIBILITY
       Unlike  the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to con-
       tain any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/",  and  "#".	 Also,
       printer and class names are not case-sensitive.

       The "-h", "-E", "-U", and "-W" options are unique to CUPS.

       The Solaris "-f", "-P", and "-S" options are silently ignored.
