Command Line Printing: Printing Multiple Copies

To print multiple copies of a document, you use the -n option to lp and specify a number, which will be the number of copies of the output. The default is 1. For example:
	% lp -n 2  foo
This will print 2 copies of the file "foo" to your printer.

To specify a printer that is different than the printer set in your shell start-up file:

	% lp -n 2 -d abc1 foo
This will send two copies of the file "foo" to printer abc1.
