NAME


lpusers - set printing queue priorities

SYNOPSIS


lpusers -d priority-level


lpusers -q priority-level -u login-ID-list


lpusers -u login-ID-list


lpusers -q priority-level


lpusers -l


DESCRIPTION


The lpusers command sets limits to the queue priority level that can be
assigned to jobs submitted by users of the LP print service.


The first form of the command (with -d) sets the system-wide priority
default to priority-level, where priority-level is a value of 0 to 39,
with 0 being the highest priority. If a user does not specify a priority
level with a print request (see lp(1)), the default priority level is
used. Initially, the default priority level is 20.


The second form of the command (with -q and -u) sets the default highest
priority-level (0-39) that the users in login-ID-list can request when
submitting a print request. The login-ID-list argument may include any
or all of the following constructs:

login-ID
A user on any system


system_name!login-ID
A user on the system system_name


system_name!all
All users on system system_name


all!login-ID
A user on all systems


all
All users on all systems


Users that have been given a limit cannot submit a print request with a
higher priority level than the one assigned, nor can they change a
request that has already been submitted to have a higher priority. Any
print requests submitted with priority levels higher than allowed will be
given the highest priority allowed.


The third form of the command (with -u) removes any explicit priority
level for the specified users.


The fourth form of the command (with -q) sets the default highest
priority level for all users not explicitly covered by the use of the
second form of this command.


The last form of the command (with -l) lists the default priority level
and the priority limits assigned to users.
