NAME
       ppdmerge - merge ppd files (deprecated)

SYNOPSIS
       ppdmerge [ -o output-ppd-file ] ppd-file ppd-file [ ...  ppd-file ]

DESCRIPTION
       ppdmerge merges two or more PPD files into a single, multi-language PPD
       file.  This program is deprecated and  will  be  removed  in  a  future
       release of CUPS.

OPTIONS
       ppdmerge supports the following options:

       -o output-ppd-file
              Specifies  the PPD file to create.  If not specified, the merged
              PPD file is written to the standard output.  If the output  file
              already exists, it is silently overwritten.


ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:


       +---------------+------------------+
       |ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE  |
       +---------------+------------------+
       |Availability   | print/cups       |
       +---------------+------------------+
       |Stability      | Volatile         |
       +---------------+------------------+

NOTES
       PPD  files  are  deprecated and will no longer be supported in a future
       feature release of CUPS.  Printers that do not support IPP can be  sup-
       ported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).

       ppdmerge  does  not check whether the merged PPD files are for the same
       device.  Merging of different  device  PPDs  will  yield  unpredictable
       results.
