NAME
       cupsd - cups scheduler

SYNOPSIS
       cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ]

DESCRIPTION
       cupsd  is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based
       upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1.  If  no  options  are
       specified  on  the  command-line  then  the  default configuration file
       /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.

OPTIONS
       -c config-file
            Uses the named configuration file.

       -f
            Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run  in  the  back-
            ground as a "daemon".

       -F
            Run  cupsd  in the foreground but detach the process from the con-
            trolling terminal and current directory. This is useful  for  run-
            ning cupsd from init(8).

       -h
            Shows the program usage.

       -l
            This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8).

       -t
            Test the configuration file for syntax errors.

COMPATIBILITY
       cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations.
       It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.
