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


   OPTIONS
       -sspooler Explicit spooler type.


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


       -ooption=value
                 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 speci-
                 fied, 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 con-
                 trol 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
                 thing.


       -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
