DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       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.
