ppdc - cups ppd compiler (deprecated)
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 program is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of CUPS.
ppdc supports the following options: -D name[=value] Sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file. -I include-directory Specifies an alternate include directory. Multiple -I options can be supplied to add additional directories. -c message-catalog Specifies a single message catalog file in GNU gettext (filename.po) or Apple strings (filename.strings) format to be used for localization. -d output-directory Specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default output directory is "ppd". -l language(s) Specifies one or more languages to use when localizing the PPD file(s). The default language is "en" (English). Separate multiple 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. -m Specifies that the output filename should be based on the ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName. -t Specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of generated. -v Specifies verbose output, basically a running status of which files are being loaded or written. -z Generates compressed PPD files (filename.ppd.gz). The default is to generate uncompressed PPD files. --cr --crlf --lf Specifies the line ending to use - carriage return, carriage return and line feed, or line feed alone. The default is to use the line feed character alone.
