Is is possible to hold and release CUPS print jobs from command line? How to do it?

I tried cupsenable:

sudo cupsenable --release myprinter

but it didn't work.

I figured it out by myself:

do

lpq

to get the job id and then

lp -i job-id -H resume

See this page for a reference. See also this one.
