LPSTAT(1)                   General Commands Manual                  LPSTAT(1)

       lpstat - display the printer status information

       lpstat [ -d ] [ -r ] [ -s ] [ -t ] [ -a [ list ]] [ -c [ list ]]
     [ -o [ list ]] [ -p [ list ]]
     [ -u [ list ]] [ -v [ list ]]

       lpstat  prints  information  about  the  current  status of the printer
       spooling system.

       If no options are given, then lpstat prints the status of all  requests
       made to lp(1) by the user.  When the destination printer is not explic-
       itly specified, the value of the LPDEST environment variable is used by
       default.  If LPDEST is not defined, then the value of the PRINTER envi-
       ronment variable is used.  If PRINTER is not defined either,  then  the
       system default printer is used.  Any arguments that are not options are
       assumed to be request ids (as returned by lp).  lpstat prints the  sta-
       tus of such requests.

       The  options  below  may  appear  in  any order and may be repeated and
       intermixed with other arguments.  Some of the options below may be fol-
       lowed  by  an  optional list that can be in one of two forms: a list of
       items separated from one another  by  a  comma,  or  a  list  of  items
       enclosed  in  double  quotes  and separated from one another by a comma
       and/or one or more SPACE characters.  For example:

              -u"user1, user2, user3"

       The omission of a list following such options  prints  all  information
       relevant to the option, for example:

              lpstat -o

       prints the status of all output requests.

       -d        Print the system default destination for output requests.

       -r        Print the status of the printer request scheduler

       -s        Print  a  status  summary,  including  the status of the line
                 printer scheduler, the system default destination, a list  of
                 class  names  and  their  members, and a list of printers and
                 their associated devices.
