8.1.4 Printing Multiple Copies

You can print more than one copy of a file. When you request more than one copy, the file is printed the number of times you specify using the -n option to the lp command. The print request is considered as one print job, and only one header page is printed.

Enter the following to request multiple copies:

$ lp -nnumber filename

where number is the desired number of copies and filename is the name of the file you are printing.

For example to print four copies of the /etc/passwd file:

$ lp -n4 /etc/passwd
request id is pinecone-9 (1 file)
