[linux] printcap entry for a null printer default

Hi.

I'm running lprng and want to set my printcap file so that the default
printer is null and directs jobs that are sent to no particular printer to
/dev/null, basicaly forcing users to use an 'lpr -P <printer>' type
command when they send print jobs. I can't figure out how to set this up
in /etc/princap in such a way that lprng wont reject. Does anyone have
experience with this?

Thanks,
-Cere
