lpshell: curses-based interface to LPD queues

Once upon a time I have linux server with monitor and printer attached, which stood in the corner of room. I thought that it is desirable to be able to control printer jobs from the server console, without need to run to some workstation if paper jammed.

So, I wrote this program which uses standard lpq, lpc and lprm utilities and provides full-screen interface. It has some provisions against allowing user access to anything but printer queues.
