Talking The Spooler's quest

Hi All,
I'am using a MDK 9.1 Distro and an EPSON Photo 830.
Unfortunately, i sent too many documents on it.
Does anyone know how i can found the printer spooler and delete some of the documents inside of it ?
Tks in advance.

I did a

find / -name spool

on my redhat box and it returned


I then went into the /var/spool and found a bunch of printer files. I suppose one could delete them from there. Hope this is what you meant. I wasnt sure exactly what you were asking.
