NAME

       ppdc - cups ppd compiler

SYNOPSIS

       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

DESCRIPTION

       ppdc compiles PPDC source files into one or more PPD files.

       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 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.

       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 generated.

       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.
