Question I mam Not able to delete print queues,maybe from a terminal?

I have 30 print jobs waiting in a print queue,can i delete them from a terminal window?
The control panel interface ignores me if i right click and delete any of the queues!!
Anybody got a faster easier way to delete the jobs waiting in the queue?

use first #lpq -a to see all the jobs in the queue
then use #lprm (jobs_ID) to kill a specific print job
