Examples - Include/Exclude

Include only the printers “lp” and “2up”:

cloudprint -i lp -i 2up

Exclude all printers whose names start with “GCP-“:

cloudprint -x GCP-

By default, all printers are included. For the include and exclude options, the argument is a regular expression which is matched against the start of the printer name.

For example, to include all printers whose names begin “lp”:

cloudprint -i lp # includes both lp and lp2up
