LP(1) General Commands Manual LP(1) NAME lp - front-end to the print spooler SYNOPSIS lp [-cs] [-d printer] [-n num] [-o option] [file ...] DESCRIPTION lp is a front-end to the print spooler as required by the IEEE Std 1003.2 ("POSIX.2") specification. It effectively invokes lpr(1) with the proper set of arguments. It generally prints the named files on the destination printer. The following options are available: -c Make the lp command exit only after further access to any of the input files is no longer required. The application can then safely delete or modify the files without affecting the output operation. -d printer Specify a particular printer. If no -d is provided on the command line, the contents of the environment variables LPDEST or PRINTER (with this precedence) are taken as the destination printer. -n num Specify that num copies of each of the named files shall be printed. -o option Printer specific options. Not supported, provided only as a compatibility option for SVR4. -s Silent operation. ENVIRONMENT As described above, the variables LPDEST and PRINTER are examined to select the destination printer. SEE ALSO lpr(1) STANDARDS The lp command is expected to comply with the IEEE Std 1003.2 ("POSIX.2") specification. AUTHORS This implementation of the lp command has been written by J"org Wunsch. BUGS The IEEE Std 1003.2 ("POSIX.2") specification does not provide any means to print non-text files. It rather requires the files to be printed to be text files limited to reasonable line lengths and printable characters. NetBSD 8.0 January 22, 1995 NetBSD 8.0
