NAME

       cupsd - common unix printing system daemon


SYNOPSIS

       cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ]


DESCRIPTION

       cupsd  is  the scheduler for the Common UNIX Printing System. It imple-
       ments a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, ver-
       sion  1.1.   If  no  options are specified on the command-line then the
       default configuration file (usually /etc/cups/cupsd.conf) will be used.

       The  -f option forces cupsd to run in the foreground; the default is to
       run in the background as a "daemon".

       The -F option forces cupsd to run in the foreground  but  detaches  the
       process  from  the  controlling terminal and current directory. This is
       useful for running cupsd from init.


COMPATIBILITY

       cupsd implements all of the required IPP/1.1 attributes and operations.
       It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.
