lpq [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ -P destination[/instance] ] [ -a ] [ -l ] [ +interval ]
lpq shows the current print queue status on the named printer. Jobs queued on the default destination will be shown if no printer or class is specified on the command-line. The +interval option allows you to continuously report the jobs in the queue until the queue is empty; the list of jobs is shown once every interval seconds.
lpq supports the following options: -E Forces encryption when connecting to the server. -P destination[/instance] Specifies an alternate printer or class name. -U username Specifies an alternate username. -a Reports jobs on all printers. -h server[:port] Specifies an alternate server. -l Requests a more verbose (long) reporting format.
