User Commands cancel(1)
NAMEcancel - cancel print request
SYNOPSIScancel [ request-ID ... ] [ destination ... ] cancel -u user ... [ destination ... ]
DESCRIPTIONThe cancel utility cancels print requests. There are two forms of the cancel command. The first form of cancel has two optional arguments: print requests (request-ID) and destinations (destination). Speci- fying request-ID with destination cancels request-ID on destination. Specifying only the destination cancels the current print request on destination. If destination is not specified, cancel cancels the requested print request on all destinations. The second form of cancel cancels a user's print requests on specific destinations. Users can only cancel print requests associated with their username. By default, users can only cancel print requests on the host from which the print request was submitted. If a super-user has set user-equivalence=true in /etc/printers.conf on the print server, users can cancel print requests associated with their username on any host. Super-users can cancel print requests on the host from which the print request was submitted. Super-users can also cancel print requests from the print server. The print client commands locate destination information in a very specific order. See printers.conf(4) and printers(4) for details.
