       ppdcfile - cups ppd compiler source file format (deprecated)


       The  CUPS PPD compiler reads meta files that contain descriptions of one or more PPD files
       to be generated by ppdc(1).  This man page provides a quick  reference  to  the  supported
       keywords and should be used in conjunction with the online help for CUPS.

       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

       Printer  driver  information  can  be grouped and shared using curly 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}



       #font name encoding "version" charset status
