HP-UX lpstat output changes

Does anyone know why or when the “lpstat” output changed from output-sample-1 to out-sample-2 on HP-UX?

>>> Output-Sample-1
:!lpstat

Re: HP-UX lpstat output changes

Hi Rodney:

This appears to represent the difference between a simple 'lpstat' and 'lpstat -t'. See if you have aliased 'lpstat' to be 'lpstat -t':

# whence -v lpstat
lpstat is /usr/bin/lpstat

...is unaliased

# whence -v lpstat
lpstat is an alias for lpstat -t


...whould be shown if someone had done:

# alias lpstat="lpstat -t'

Regards!

I don't see this fancy smancy output with my lpstat -t.

># whence -v lpstat

This is probably going to point to: :-)
/fancy/smancy/bin/lpstat
