I was reviewing one of my chapters and had to add examples of all the
commands I described.

In smbclient, I tried the cancel command.

It cancels anything, even non-existent jobs.  However, lpq still shows them
in the queue if they existed.  Interesting stuff. Next week I will try to
look at the code and figure out why.

I now have quite a list of things that will need to be fixed so there are
less lies in the book :-)
