       lpstat -	print cups status information

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

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

       The lpstat command supports the following options:

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -H   Shows the server hostname and port.

       -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.

       -e   Shows all available	destinations on	the local network.

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

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

       -o [destination(s)]
	    Shows the jobs queued on the specified destinations.  If no	desti-
	    nations are	specified all jobs are shown.

       -p [printer(s)]
	    Shows the printers and whether they	are enabled for	printing.   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.

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

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