      rcancel - remove requests from a remote line printer spooling queue

      /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
      (see cancel(1)).

      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.

	   -u user     Remove any requests queued belonging to that user (or
		       users).	This form of invoking rcancel is available
		       only to users with appropriate privileges.

      rcancel was developed by the University of California, Berkeley, and
