Package: cups-client

Severity: wishlist

Dear maintainer,

lp --help lacks describing the -d destination option:

Usage: lp [options] [--] [file(s)]
lp [options] -i id
Opciones:
-c Make a copy of the print file(s)
-E Encrypt the connection to the server
-h server[:port] Connect to the named server and port




It woule be nice/useful to include the same description from the man
page:

-d destination
Prints files to the named printer.


Cheers,

-- Santiago

Indeed. 'lpr --help' gives -P destination.

Thanks for your report, Santiago.
