NAME
       ppdc - cups ppd compiler

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.

       The -D option sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is
       equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.

       The -I option specifies an alternate  include  directory;  multiple  -I
       options can be supplied to add additional directories.

       The  -c  option  specifies a single message catalog file in GNU gettext
       source format (filename.po) to be used for localization.

       The -d option specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default
       output directory is "ppd".

       The  -l  option  specifies one or more languages to use when localizing
       the PPD file(s). The default language is "en" (English). Separate  mul-
       tiple        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.

       The -m option specifies that the output filename should be based on the
       ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName.

       The -t option specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of gen-
       erated.

       The -v option provides more verbose output, basically a running  status
       of which files are being loaded or written.

       The  -z  option  generates compressed PPD files (filename.ppd.gz).  The
       default is to generate uncompressed PPD files.

       The --cr, --crlf, and --lf options specify the line  ending  to  use  -
       carriage  return,  carriage  return  and  line  feed, or line feed. The
       default is to use the line feed character alone.
