DESCRIPTION
       foomatic-printjob  provides a spooler-independent interface to creating
       and managing printer jobs and print queues.  Note that the first	 argu-
       ment  changes the mode of the command, as it combines the functionality
       of several System V-style printing commands.

   OPTIONS
       -sspooler Explicit spooler type.

       -Pqueuename
		 Any commands specified	should apply to	this queue instead  of
		 the default.

       -ooption=value
		 Set option to value

       -ooption	 Set the switch	option

       -#n	 Print n copies

       file1  file2  ...
		 Files	to  be	printed, when no file is given,	standard input
		 will be printed

       -Q	 Query the jobs	in a queue.  If	a list of users	is  specified,
		 only those users' jobs	will be	queried.

       -Q -a	 Query	the  jobs in all queues.  If a list of users is	speci-
		 fied, only those users' jobs will be queried.

       -R [ - |	jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
		 Remove	a job from a queue.  Using - will remove all jobs.

       -C command [ arguments ]
		 Execute control commands  for	queue/job  manipulation.   The
		 commands  are the ones	of the BSD "lpc" utility. Use the con-
		 trol command "help" to	get  a	list  of  supported  commands.
		 Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the
		 same commands given under  different  spoolers	 do  the  same
		 thing.

       -i	 Interactive  mode:  You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is
		 in doubt about	something.  Otherwise  foomatic-printjob  uses
		 auto-detection	or quits with an error.

       -S	 Save the chosen spooler as the	default	spooler

       -h	 Show  this  message  or show a	list of	available options if a
		 queue is specified
