NAME

       ppdcfile - cups ppd compiler source file format

DESCRIPTION

       The  CUPS PPD compiler reads meta files that contain descriptions of one or more PPD files
       to be generated by ppdc. This man  page  provides  a  quick  reference  to  the  supported
       keywords  and should be used in conjuction with the Common UNIX Printing System Developers
       Manual.

       The source file format is plain ASCII text that can be edited  using  your  favorite  text
       editor.  Comments  are  supported  using  the  C  (/*  ...  */)  and  C++ (// ...) comment
       mechanisms.

       Printer driver information can be grouped and shared using curley braces ({  ...  });  PPD
       files are written when a close brace or end-of-file is seen and a PCFileName directive has
       been defined.

       Directives may be placed anywhere on a line and are followed by one or  more  values.  The
       following is a list of the available directives and the values they accept:

       #define name value

       #elif {name | value}

       #else

       #endif
