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.
-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.

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
Cancel job "myprinter-42":
cancel myprinter-42
Cancel all jobs:
cancel -a

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