NAME
       cancel - cancel jobs

SYNOPSIS
       cancel  [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u user-
       name ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]

DESCRIPTION
       cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all  jobs
       from the specified destination.

OPTIONS
       The following options are recognized by cancel:

       -E
            Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -U username
            Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.

       -a
            Cancel  all jobs on the named destination, or all jobs on all des-
            tinations if none is provided.

       -h hostname[:port]
            Chooses an alternate server.

       -u username
            Cancels jobs owned by username.

COMPATIBILITY
       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  con-
       tain  any  printable  character  except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#".  Also,
       printer and class names are not case-sensitive.
