      rlp - send LP line printer request to a remote system

      /usr/sbin/rlp -Iid [-C class] [-J job] [-T title] [-i[numcols]] [-
      kfont] [-w num] [-cdfghlnptv] file

      rlp transfers a spooling request to a remote system to be printed.
      rlp communicates with a spooling daemon on a remote system to transfer
      the spooling request.  Options can be set only on the original system.
      Transfers of a remote request use only the -I option and the file.

      This command is intended to be used only by the spool system in
      response to the lp command and should not be invoked directly (see

      rlp recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

	   -Iid		  The argument id is the request ID.

	   -C class	  Take the class argument as a job classification
			  for use on the banner page.

	   -J job	  Take the job argument as the job name to print on
			  the banner page.  Normally, the first file's name
			  is used.

	   -T title	  Use the title argument as the title used by pr
			  instead of the file name (see pr(1)).	 -T is
			  ignored unless the -p option is specified.

	   -h		  Suppress the printing of the banner page.

	   -i[numcols]	  Cause the output to be indented.  If the next
			  argument is numeric, it is used as the number of
			  blanks to be printed before each line; otherwise,
			  8 characters are printed.

	   -kfont	  Specify a font to be mounted on font position k,
			  where k is from 1 through 4.

	   -wnum	  Use the num argument number as the page width for

      The following single-letter options are used to notify the line
      printer spooler that the files are not standard text files.  The
      spooling system uses the appropriate filters (if the option is
      supported) to print the data accordingly.	 These options are mutually

	   -c	       The files are assumed to contain data produced by

	   -d	       The files are assumed to contain data from tex (DVI

	   -f	       Use a filter that interprets the first character of
		       each line as a standard FORTRAN carriage control

	   -g	       The files are assumed to contain standard plot data
		       as produced by the plot routines.

	   -l	       Use a filter that suppresses page breaks.

	   -n	       The files are assumed to contain data from ditroff
		       (device-independent troff).

	   -p	       Use pr to format the files.

	   -t	       The files are assumed to contain data from troff (cat
		       phototypesetter commands).

	   -v	       The files are assumed to contain a raster image for
		       devices such as the Benson Varian.

      Some remote line printer models may not support all of these options.
      Options not supported are silently ignored.

      When rlp is transferring a request that originated on another system,
      only the -I option and the file is used.	This saves rlp from having
      to set the various options multiple times.  Specifying unused options
      does not produce an error.

      rlp was developed by the University of California, Berkeley and HP.
