NAME         top

       cancel - cancel jobs

SYNOPSIS         top

       cancel [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u
       username ] [ -x ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The cancel command cancels print jobs.  If no destination or id is
       specified, the currently printing job on the default destination is
       canceled.

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are recognized by cancel:

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

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

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

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

       -u username
            Cancels jobs owned by username.

       -x   Deletes job data files in addition to canceling.

CONFORMING TO         top

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

EXAMPLES         top

       Cancel the current print job:

           cancel

       Cancel job "myprinter-42":

           cancel myprinter-42

       Cancel all jobs:

           cancel -a

NOTES         top

       Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs
       via the -u option should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs
       operations in cupsd.conf(5).
