Net::CUPS::Destination - CUPS Destination Object

  use Net::CUPS::Destination;
  my $printer = $cups->getDestination( "lj4200dn" );
  my $name = $printer->getName();
  my @options = $printer->getOptions();
  my $jobid = $printer->printFile( $filename, $title );

Net::CUPS is an object oriented interface to the Common Unix Printing System.
Net::CUPS::Destination is an abstraction of the concept of a destination in CUPS. Destinations will most likely be a printer, but it can be any type of target in which a file is sent for processing.

my $dest->cancelJob( $jobid );
Method to chancel a job sent to this destination.
getDescription
my $description = $dest->getDescription();
Provides the description string associated with this printer.
getError
my $error = $dest->getError();
Utility method for returning the last error that occurred.

my $name = $dest->getName();
Method to return the name of the destination.

my @jobs = $dest->getJobs( $whose, $scope );

I know this is the method that you have been looking for. This is what you will use to send a file to handled by the destination. You must provide the name of the file and a title for the job.

This function returns the device URI of a destination. For example, a network printer might appear as socket://192.168.1.1
