NAME

cancel - cancel jobs  

SYNOPSIS

cancel [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u username ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]  

DESCRIPTION

cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all jobs from the specified destination.  

OPTIONS

The following options are recognized by cancel:
-E

Forces encryption when connecting to the server.
-U username

Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.
-a

Cancel all jobs on the named destination, or all jobs on all destinations if none is provided.
-h hostname[:port]

Chooses an alternate server.
-u username

Cancels jobs owned by username.
 

COMPATIBILITY

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.  

NOTES

Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via the -u option should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs operations in cupsd.conf(5).
