lpd_print - send a file to a remote lpd print spooler
lpd_print [-f file] [-j id_num] [-v] queue@host | host
lpd_print sends data to the BSD line printer daemon at
host. The job is spooled to queue, or lp if not speci-
fied. The job id given to the remote host is id_num, or 1
if not specified. If file is not specified, lpd_print
sends data from STDIN. No banner page will be printed.
To be compliant with RFC-1179, this program must run SUID
root, so that a privileged outbound port may be used.
However, many lpd servers found on networked printers do
not enforce this requirement.
Send data from file instead of STDIN.
Set the job id to be job_id. This should be a
three digit number from 001 to 999. Default is
-v Print warnings and fatal errors.
-vv Print warnings, fatal errors, and informative mes-
-vvv Print everything (debug level).
The timeout value for the connect is not adjustable. Many
details of the control file cannot be specified.
