    The man page says that this just cancels the *current* request on
    printer_01, not all of them.
     

    cancel `lpstat -R printer_01 | awk '{print $2}'`

    Well, if you are doing this because you're doing some maintenance
    on the printer, you're supposed to be able to do "disable -c printer_01"
    to disable and cancel them.

    If you want to do it as a regular user, a simple shell script should
    suffice:

    #! /bin/sh

    for printer in "$"
    do
    lpstat -R "$printer" | while read num jobid junk
    do
    cancel "$jobid"
    done
    done

    That will cancel, one by one, all the jobs on all the printers named
    on the command line. It seems like it'd be better, though, to
    cancel them in reverse order, in case the system manages to start
    job #1 once you cancel job #0.

    Hope that helps.
