       cupsd - cups scheduler

SYNOPSIS         top

       cupsd [ -c cupsd.conf ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -s cups-
       files.conf ] [ -t ]

DESCRIPTION         top

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

OPTIONS         top

       -c cupsd.conf
            Uses the named cupsd.conf configuration file.

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

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

       -h   Shows the program usage.

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

       -s cups-files.conf
            Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file.

       -t   Test the configuration file for syntax errors.

FILES         top

CONFORMING TO         top

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

EXAMPLES         top

       Run cupsd in the background with the default configuration file:

           cupsd

       Test a configuration file called test.conf:

           cupsd -t -c test.conf

       Run cupsd in the foreground with a test configuration file called
       test.conf:

           cupsd -f -c test.conf
