NAME
       lpget - get printing configuration

SYNOPSIS
       lpget [-k key] [destination... |	list]

DESCRIPTION
       The  lpget  utility  reads  printing configuration information from the
       configuration databases in $HOME/.printers, /etc/printers.conf,	print-
       ers.conf.byname,	 printers.org_dir,  and	FNS printer contexts. This in-
       formation, called a configuration report, is displayed to the  standard
       output.	See printers(4)	and printers.conf(4) for information about the
       printer configuration databases.

       lpget displays a	configuration report for all keys  for	the  specified
       destination or destinations by default. Use the -k option  to display a
       configuration report for	specific keys. Use the list operand to display
       a configuration report for all configured destinations.

OPTIONS
       The following option is supported:

       -k key
	     Displays a	configuration report for key. See printers.conf(4) for
	     information about specifying  key.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       destination
	     Displays a	configuration report for  destination. Destination can
	     be	 either	 a  printer of a class of printers, (see lpadmin(1M)).
	     Specify destination using	atomic,	 POSIX-style  (server:destina-
	     tion),    or    Federated	  Naming   Service   (FNS)   (.../ser-
	     vice/printer/...) names. See printers.conf	 (4)  for  information
	     regarding	the  naming  conventions for atomic and	FNS names, and
	     standards(5) for information concerning POSIX.

       list  Displays a	configuration report for all configured	destinations.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Displaying a Configuration Report for	the bsdaddr Key

       key for printer catalpa.

NOTES
       Be mindful of the following if the LDAP database	is used	 as  the  name
       service.	 If  the  ldapclient(1M) server	is a replica LDAP server, LDAP
       printer database	updates	may not	appear	immediately,  as  the  replica
       server  may  not	 not have been updated by the master server and	can be
       out of sync. For	example, a printer that	you deleted by using lpset(1M)
       may  still  appear in the printer list you display with lpget until the
       replica is updated from the master. Replica servers vary	as to how  of-
       ten  they  are updated from the master. Refer to	the System Administra-
       tion Guide: Naming and Directory	Services for more information on  LDAP
       replication.
