10.2.5 How Can I Pass Options to `lpr'

How can I tell a2ps to ask lpr no to print the banner?

How can I pass specific options to lp?

If your `Printer:' fields in the configuration files were properly filled (see section 4.5 Your Printers), you can use the variable `lp.options' to pass options to lpr (or lp, depending on your environment):

a2ps -Dlp.options="-h -s" -P printer

You can also define `lp.options' once for all, See section 4.9.1 Defining Variables.

Finally, you can use `Printer:' several times to reach a printer with different lpr options.
