       foomatic-printjob  provides a spooler-independent interface to creating
       and managing printer jobs  and  print  queues.   Note  that  the  first
       argument   changes  the  mode  of  the  command,  as  it  combines  the
       functionality of several System V-style printing commands.

       -sspooler Explicit spooler type.

                 Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead  of
                 the default.

                 Set option to value

       -ooption  Set the switch option

       -#n       Print n copies

       file1  file2  ...
                 Files  to  be  printed, when no file is given, standard input
                 will be printed

       -Q        Query the jobs in a queue.  If a list of users is  specified,
                 only those users' jobs will be queried.

       -Q -a     Query  the  jobs  in  all  queues.   If  a  list  of users is
                 specified, only those users' jobs will be queried.

       -R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
                 Remove a job from a queue.  Using - will remove all jobs.

       -C command [ arguments ]
                 Execute control commands  for  queue/job  manipulation.   The
                 commands  are  the  ones  of  the  BSD "lpc" utility. Use the
                 control command "help" to get a list of  supported  commands.
                 Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the
                 same commands given under  different  spoolers  do  the  same

       -i        Interactive  mode:  You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is
                 in doubt about something.  Otherwise  foomatic-printjob  uses
                 auto-detection or quits with an error.

       -S        Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler

       -h        Show  this  message  or show a list of available options if a
                 queue is specified
