NAME
       cupsd - cups scheduler

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

DESCRIPTION
       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   /usr/lo-
       cal/etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.

OPTIONS
       -c cupsd.conf
	    Uses the named cupsd.conf 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) or
	    systemd(8).

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

       -t   Test the configuration file	for syntax errors.
