For more details:     man lp

   Print a double-sided legal document to a printer called "foo":
          lp -d foo -o media=legal -o sides=two-sided-long-edge filename

   Print an image across 4 pages:
           lp -d bar -o scaling=200 filename

   Print a text file with 12 characters per inch, 8 lines per inch, and a
   1 inch left margin:
           lp -d bar -o cpi=12 -o lpi=8 -o page-left=72 filename

   Or just print the file to the default printer
           lp "my long file.txt"
