 That would be the command lpc, if you are using lpr. Do:
$ whatis lpr 

and if a description comes back, then that is what you are using.
The command to stop the printing and clean out the files is:

$ lpc clean all

    Linux / UNIX
    Information about the Linux / UNIX lpc command.

your Linux should also have a man page fro lpc
