       foomatic-ppd-options - show the PPD options


       foomatic-ppd-options [-d=debuglevel] [ ppdfiles ]


       The  foomatic-ppd-options  program  reads the specified PPD files or stdin and decodes the
       PPD file to produce a list of options.  This is really just a text based version of  other
       print configuration tools.

       The  output format consists of a set of lines, each starting with a keyword, followed by a
       set of options and the default value.  For example:

              makemodel = Tektronix Phaser 350 Foomatic/Postscript (recommended)
              name=PageSize; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), \
                  A4 (A4), 11x17 (11x17), A3 (A3), A5 (A5), B5 (B5 \(JIS\)),...
              name=PageRegion; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), A4 (A4), ...

       Each option starts with the name tag, followed by a default value (if  any),  followed  by
       the set of options and a comment describing them.  Punctuation in the comment is escaped.

            Set the debug level. 0 disables debug messages.

       [ files ]
            The list of PPD files to read for options.  A '-' causes STDIN to be read.


       foomatic-ppd-options  exits  with  a  0 status if successful, and nonzero if an error.  An
       error message is also printed on standard error (STDERR).

       Probably.  But it has been tested.
