SCO OpenServer clients
On SCO OpenServer clients, the RLP commands are

options and when invoked with the following supported options:
modify an earlier print request of a job still in the local queue.

lp -o length=scaled_number
lp -o width=scaled_number
lp -o lpi=scaled_number
lp -o cpi=scaled_number

as defined locally
lp -o nofilebreak
no inter-file form feed
lp -o nobanner

lp -m | -w

print the request next. The printer will attempt to print the job at queue
lp -H resume
resume a previously held request.

Multiple lp options specified with the -o

and separated by commas. For example,
lp -o "nobanner, length=10" is valid, while
lp -o nobanner -o length=10 is not.
The variable ``all'' is allowed with the
-a, -c, -f, -o, -p,
-S, -u, -v options for
Only the options listed above are supported for the lp
and lpstat commands when used for remote printing.
If one or more unsupported options are specified, they are ignored
and the print job is submitted without them.
If printing is to be done locally, all of the options that are
normally available for local printing are supported.
On an SCO OpenServer client, you must install RLP before you can
do remote printing. See
``Installing and removing RLP''
earlier in this chapter for more information.
manual pages for more information on the supported options.
