          cupsdisable, cupsenable - stop/start printers and classes

          cupsdisable [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -c ] [ -h server[:port]
          ] [ -r reason ] [ --hold ] destination(s)
          cupsenable [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -c ] [ -h server[:port]
          ] [ --release ] destination(s)

          cupsenable starts the named printers or classes while
          cupsdisable stops the named printers or classes.

          The following options may be used:

          -E   Forces encryption of the connection to the server.

          -U username
               Uses the specified username when connecting to the

          -c   Cancels all jobs on the named destination.

          -h server[:port]
               Uses the specified server and port.

               Holds remaining jobs on the named printer.  Useful for
               allowing the current job to complete before performing

          -r "reason"
               Sets the message associated with the stopped state.  If
               no reason is specified then the message is set to "Rea-
               son Unknown".

               Releases pending jobs for printing.  Use after running
               cupsdisable with the --hold option to resume printing.

          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-

          The System V versions of these commands are disable and
          enable, respectively.  They have been renamed to avoid con-
          flicts with the bash(1) build-in commands of the same names.

          The CUPS versions of disable and enable may ask the user for
          an access password depending on the printing system configu-
          ration.  This differs from the System V versions which
          require the root user to execute these commands.
