       cupstestppd - test conformance of ppd files


       cupstestppd  [  -I  category  ]  [  -R  rootdir  ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -v[v] ]
       filename.ppd[.gz] [ ...  filename.ppd[.gz] ]
       cupstestppd [ -R rootdir ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -v[v] ] -


       cupstestppd tests the conformance of PPD files to the Adobe PostScript Printer Description
       file  format specification version 4.3.  It can also be used to list the supported options
       and available fonts in a PPD file.  The results of testing and any other output  are  sent
       to the standard output.

       The first form of cupstestppd tests one or more PPD files on the command-line.  The second
       form tests the PPD file provided on the standard input.


       cupstestppd supports the following options:

       -I filename
            Ignores all PCFileName warnings.

       -I filters
            Ignores all filter errors.

       -I profiles
            Ignores all profile errors.

       -R rootdir
            Specifies an alternate root directory for the filter, pre-filter, and  other  support
            file checks.

       -W constraints
            Report all UIConstraint errors as warnings.

       -W defaults
            Except for size-related options, report all default option errors as warnings.

       -W filters
            Report all filter errors as warnings.

       -W profiles
            Report all profile errors as warnings.

       -W sizes
            Report all media size errors as warnings.

       -W translations
            Report all translation errors as warnings.

       -W all
            Report all of the previous errors as warnings.

       -W none
            Report all of the previous errors as errors.

       -q   Specifies that no information should be displayed.

       -r   Relaxes   the  PPD  conformance  requirements  so  that  common  whitespace,  control
            character, and formatting problems are not treated as hard errors.

       -v   Specifies that detailed conformance testing results should be displayed  rather  than
            the concise PASS/FAIL/ERROR status.

       -vv  Specifies that all information in the PPD file should be displayed in addition to the
            detailed conformance testing results.

       The -q, -v, and -vv options are mutually exclusive.


       cupstestppd returns zero on success and  non-zero  on  error.   The  error  codes  are  as

       1    Bad command-line arguments or missing PPD filename.

       2    Unable to open or read PPD file.

       3    The PPD file contains format errors that cannot be skipped.

       4    The PPD file does not conform to the Adobe PPD specification.


       The  following  command  will test all PPD files under the current directory and print the
       names of each file that does not conform:

           find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; -print

       The next command tests all PPD files  under  the  current  directory  and  print  detailed
       conformance testing results for the files that do not conform:

           find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; \
               -exec cupstestppd -v '{}' \;
