cancel - cancel jobs
cancel [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u username ] [ -x ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]
The cancel command cancels print jobs. If no destination or id is specified, the currently printing job on the default destination is canceled.
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.|
|Specifies an alternate server.|
|Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.|
|Cancels jobs owned by username.|
|-x||Deletes job data files in addition to canceling.|
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.
Cancel the current print job:
Cancel job "myprinter-42":
Cancel all jobs:
Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via the -u option should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs operations in cupsd.conf(5).
