SYNOPSIS

cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ]

DESCRIPTION

cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.

OPTIONS

-c config-file
  Uses the named configuration file.
-f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon".
-F Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init(8).
-h Shows the program usage.
-l This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8) or systemd(8).
-t Test the configuration file for syntax errors.
