stops the named printers or classes. The following options
may be used:
Forces encryption of the connection to the server.
Uses the specified username
when connecting to the server.
Cancels all jobs on the named destination.

Holds remaining jobs on the
named printer. Useful for allowing the current job to
complete before performing maintenance.
Sets the message associated
with the stopped state. If no reason is specified then the
message is set to "Reason 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-sensitive.
The System V versions of these commands are disable and
enable. They have been renamed to avoid conflicts with the
bash(1) build-in commands of the same name.
The CUPS versions of disable and enable may ask the
user for an access password depending on the printing system
configuration. This differs from the System V versions which
require the root user to execute these commands.
