You could use

lprm

Re: How to "kill" all jobs

"lprm" does not exist in a default HP-UX installation.

In Unix-style operating systems, there are two main types of print spoolers.

HP-UX standard print spooler is SystemV type: it uses commands like lp, lpstat and cancel.

Some other Unixes use BSD-type print spooler: it uses commands like lpr, lpq and lprm.

Some modern print spooler softwares (like CUPS) offer both sets of commands to maximize compatibility.

Thanks for the information!

Cancel -e (printer_name) makes the work.
