       ppdc - cups ppd compiler


       ppdc  [ -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] [ -c message-catalog
       ] [ -d output-directory ] [ -l language(s) ] [-m] [-t] [ -v ] [ -z ]  [
       --cr ] [ --crlf ] [ --lf ] source-file


       ppdc  compiles  PPDC source files into one or more PPD files. This pro-
       gram is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of CUPS.

       The -D option sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is
       equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.

       The  -I  option  specifies  an alternate include directory; multiple -I
       options can be supplied to add additional directories.

       The -c option specifies a single message catalog file  in  GNU  gettext
       source format (filename.po) to be used for localization.

       The -d option specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default
       output directory is "ppd".

       The -l option specifies one or more languages to  use  when  localizing
       the  PPD file(s). The default language is "en" (English). Separate mul-
       tiple       languages       with       commas,       for        example
       "de_DE,en_UK,es_ES,es_MX,es_US,fr_CA,fr_FR,it_IT" will create PPD files
       with German, UK  English,  Spanish  (Spain,  Mexico,  and  US),  French
       (France and Canada), and Italian languages in each file.

       The -m option specifies that the output filename should be based on the
       ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName.

       The -t option specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of gen-

       The  -v option provides more verbose output, basically a running status
       of which files are being loaded or written.

       The -z option generates compressed PPD  files  (filename.ppd.gz).   The
       default is to generate uncompressed PPD files.

       The  --cr,  --crlf,  and  --lf options specify the line ending to use -
       carriage return, carriage return and  line  feed,  or  line  feed.  The
       default is to use the line feed character alone.
