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. This program is deprecated and
       will be removed in a future release of CUPS.

       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.
