/usr/sbin/rcancel [id ...] [printer] [-a] [-e] [-u user]
The rcancel command removes a request, or requests, from the spool
queue of a remote printer. rcancel is invoked by the cancel command
At least one id or the name of a printer must be specified.
This command is intended to be used only by the spool system in
response to the cancel command (see lp(1)), and should not be invoked
The rcancel command recognizes the following options:
id Specifying a request ID (as returned by lp (see
lp(1)) cancels the associated request (if the request
is owned by the user), even if it is currently
printer Name of the printer (for a complete list, use lpstat
(see lpstat(1)). Specifying a printer cancels the
request which is currently printing on that printer,
if the request is owned by the user. If the -a, -e,
or the -u option is specified, this option only
specifies the printer on which to perform the cancel
-a Remove all requests owned by the user on the
specified printer (see printer). The owner is
determined by the user's login name and host name on
the machine where the lp command was invoked.
-e Empty the spool queue of all requests for the
specified printer. This form of invoking rcancel is
useful only to users with appropriate privileges.

users). This form of invoking rcancel is available
only to users with appropriate privileges.
