Description

ppdpo(1)                          Apple Inc.                          ppdpo(1)



NAME
       ppdpo - ppd message catalog generator (deprecated)

SYNOPSIS
       ppdpo  [  -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] [ -o output-file ]
       source-file

DESCRIPTION
       ppdpo extracts UI strings from PPDC source files and updates  either  a
       GNU  gettext  or  macOS  strings format message catalog source file for
       translation.  This program is deprecated  and  will  be  removed  in  a
       future release of CUPS.

OPTIONS
       ppdpo 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.

       -o output-file
            Specifies  the  output  file.  The supported extensions are .po or
            .po.gz for GNU gettext format message catalogs  and  .strings  for
            macOS strings files.
