 NAME
      enable, disable - enable/disable LP printers

 SYNOPSIS
      enable printers

      disable [-c] [-r[reason]] printers

 DESCRIPTION
      The enable command activates the named printers, enabling them to
      print requests taken by lp.  Use lpstat to find the status of printers
      (see lp(1) and lpstat(1)).

      disable deactivates the named printers, disabling them from printing
      requests taken by lp.  By default, any requests that are currently
      printing on the designated printers are reprinted in their entirety
      either on the same printer or on another member of the same class.
      Use lpstat to find the status of printers.

    Options
      disable recognizes the following options:

	   -c		  Cancel any requests that are currently printing on
			  any of the designated printers.

	   -r[reason]	  Associate a reason with the deactivation of the
			  printers.  This reason applies to all printers
			  mentioned up to the next -r option.  If the -r
			  option is not present or the -r option is given
			  without a reason, a default reason is used.
			  reason is reported by lpstat.	 The maximum length
			  of the reason message is 80 bytes.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LANG is not specified or is null, it defaults to C (see lang(5)).

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, all
      internationalization variables default to C (see environ(5)).

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multibyte character code sets are supported.

 EXAMPLES
      Enable printer snowwhite to accept requests:

	   enable snowwhite

      Deactivate printer snowwhite and cancel any logged jobs:

	   disable -c snowwhite

 WARNINGS
      If the restrict cancel feature (selected by the lpadmin -orc option -
      see lpadmin(1M)) is enabled, disable ignores the -c option.

      enable and disable perform their operation on the local system only.
