NAME
     lpd - line printer daemon

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/lpd

DESCRIPTION
     Lpd  is the line printer daemon (spool area handler) invoked
     by opr.  It uses the directory /usr/lpd.  The file  lock  in
     that  directory is used to prevent two daemons from becoming
     active simultaneously.  After the  daemon  has  successfully
     set  the  lock,  it  scans the directory for files beginning
     with ``df.''  Lines in each df  file  specify  files  to  be
     printed  in the same way as is done by the data-phone daemon
     dpd(VIII).

FILES
     /usr/lpd/*     spool area
     /dev/lp   printer
