The following options may be used:
-E Forces encryption of the connection to the server.
Uses the specified username when connecting to the server.
-c Cancels all jobs on the named destination.
Uses the specified server and port.
Holds remaining jobs on the named printer. Useful for allowing
the current job to complete before performing maintenance.
Sets the message associated with the stopped state. If no
reason is specified then the message is set to "Reason Unknown".
Releases pending jobs for printing. Use after running
cupsdisable with the --hold option to resume printing.
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.
The System V versions of these commands are disable and enable,
respectively. They have been renamed to avoid conflicts with the
bash(1) build-in commands of the same names.
The CUPS versions of disable and enable may ask the user for an
access password depending on the printing system configuration. This
differs from the System V versions which require the root user to
execute these commands.
