NAME

       foomatic-compiledb - Compile the Foomatic printer/driver database

SYNOPSIS

       foomatic-compiledb [ -t type ] [ -f ] [ -j n ] [  driver ...  ]

DESCRIPTION

       foomatic-compiledb  generates  all  PPD files or Foomatic combo XML files for all possible
       printer/driver combos, or only for a selected range of drivers.  It generally  should  not
       be  necessary  except  for  people  who  want to generate a set of Foomatic data files for
       distribution. For configuring single printers foomatic-ppdfile(1) and especially foomatic-
       configure(1) will automagically compute just what they need.

   Options
       -t type   Output file type, either ppd or xml.

       -f        Force: Write into the destination directory even if it already exists.

       -j n      n = number of work processes to run

       driver ...
                 only generate data files for these driver(s)

SEE ALSO

       foomatic-ppdfile(1),foomatic-configure(1)

EXIT STATUS

       foomatic-compiledb returns 0 unless something unexpected happens.

AUTHORS

       Manfred      Wassmann      <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de>      and      Till     Kamppeter
       <till.kamppeter@gmx.net> for the foomatic project using output from the associated binary.

BUGS

       Existing files are always conserved instead of older files being overwritten. So  deleting
       the  destination  directory  (rm  -rf  dir)  and calling foomatic-compiledb without the -f
       option is recommended.
