      nation and should be sent without filtering. This option is equiv-
      alent to "-oraw".

  -o option
      Sets a job option.

  -p      Specifies that the print file should be formatted with a shaded
      header with the date, time, job name, and page number. This option

lpr submits files for printing. Files named on the command line are sent to the named printer (or the system default destination if no des- tination is specified). If no files are listed on the command-line lpr reads the print file from the standard input.
