NAME cancel - cancel jobs
SYNOPSIS cancel [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u username ] [ -x ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]
DESCRIPTION The cancel command cancels print jobs. If no destination or id is specified, the cur‐ rently printing job on the default destination is canceled.
OPTIONS The following options are recognized by cancel: -a Cancel all jobs on the named destination, or all jobs on all destinations if none is provided. -E Forces encryption when connecting to the server. -h hostname[:port] Specifies an alternate server. -U username Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server. -u username Cancels jobs owned by username. -x Deletes job data files in addition to canceling.
CONFORMING TO 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-sen‐ sitive.
EXAMPLES Cancel the current print job: cancel Cancel job "myprinter-42": cancel myprinter-42 Cancel all jobs: cancel -a
NOTES Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via the -u option should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs operations in cupsd.conf(5).
