SYNOPSIS

ppdc [ -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] [ -c message-catalog

DESCRIPTION

ppdc compiles PPDC source files into one or more PPD files. This pro‐
gram 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 equiva‐
lent 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 (file‐
name.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 multi‐
ple 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 Model‐
Name 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.
