PPD File Management Utility

Solaris 10 5/08: The PPD File Manager, /usr/sbin/ppdmgr, is a utility for administering PostScriptTM Printer Description (PPD) files that are used with the print subsystem. When you add a PPD file to the system by using the ppdmgr utility or the lpadmin command with the -n option, a cache of PPD file information is automatically updated. This cache is used by Solaris Print Manager.

For more information, see Administering PPD Files by Using the PPD File Management Utility (Task Map) and the ppdmgr(1M) man page.
