The first appearance of lp as a print (command) was as the System V printing system on UNIX System V. Like similarly-named commands on ITS, DEC, CP/M, and 86-DOS, it was originally an acronym for terms like line print(er) and local print(er). However, the commands stopped being specific to line- or local- devices in the 1980s, and today are used with any printer compatible with the operating system itself.
