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.

OPTIONS

ppdc supports the following options:
-D name[=value]
  Sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.
-I include-directory
  Specifies an alternate include directory. Multiple -I options can be supplied to add additional directories.
-c message-catalog
  Specifies a single message catalog file in GNU gettext (filename.po) or Apple strings (filename.strings) format to be used for localization.
-d output-directory
  Specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default output directory is "ppd".
-l language(s)
  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.
-m Specifies that the output filename should be based on the ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName.
-t Specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of generated.
-v Specifies verbose output, basically a running status of which files are being loaded or written. -z Generates compressed PPD files (filename.ppd.gz). The default is to generate uncompressed PPD files.
--cr
--crlf
--lf
Specifies the line ending to use - carriage return, carriage return and line feed, or line feed alone. The default is to use the line feed character alone.
