NAME
       lpstat - print cups status information

SYNOPSIS
       lpstat  [  -E  ] [ -h server ] [ -l ] [ -W which-jobs ] [ -a [ destina-
       tion(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 user. Other options include:

       -E
            Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -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
            Specifies the CUPS server to communicate with.

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

       -o [destination(s)]
            Shows the jobs queue(1,3) 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 or not the CUPS server is running.

       -R
            Shows the ranking of print jobs.

       -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 "-p" options.

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

       -u [user(s)]
            Shows a list of print jobs queued by the specified  users.  If  no
            users(1,5) 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.

       -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(1,8) the request to the scheduler.

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

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

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