Description

NAME
       ppdi - import ppd files

SYNOPSIS
       ppdi  [  -I include-directory ] [ -o source-file ] ppd-file [ ppd-file2
       ... ppd-fileN ]

DESCRIPTION
       ppdi imports one or more PPD files into a  PPD  compiler  source  file.
       Multiple  languages  of  the  same  PPD  file  are merged into a single
       printer definition to facilitate accurate  changes  for  all  localiza-
       tions.

       The  -o  option  specifies the PPD source file to update. If the source
       file does not exist, a new source file is created. Otherwise the exist-
       ing  file is merged with the new PPD file(s) on the command-line. If no
       source file is specified, the filename "ppdi.drv" is used.
