FOOMATIC-COMPILEDB(1)	    General Commands Manual	 FOOMATIC-COMPILEDB(1)

NAME
       foomatic-compiledb - Compile the	Foomatic printer/driver	database

SYNOPSIS
       foomatic-compiledb [ -t type ] [	-f ] [ -j n ] [	 driver	...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       foomatic-compiledb  generates all PPD files or Foomatic combo XML files
       for all possible	printer/driver combos, or only for a selected range of
       drivers.	  It  generally	 should	not be necessary except	for people who
       want to generate	a set of Foomatic data	files  for  distribution.  For
       configuring   single   printers	 foomatic-ppdfile(1)   and  especially
       foomatic-configure(1) will automagically	compute	just what they need.

   Options
       -t type	 Output	file type, either ppd or xml.

       -f	 Force:	Write into the destination directory even  if  it  al-
		 ready exists.

       -j n	 n = number of work processes to run

       driver ...
		 only generate data files for these driver(s)

SEE ALSO
       foomatic-ppdfile(1),foomatic-configure(1)

EXIT STATUS
       foomatic-compiledb returns 0 unless something unexpected	happens.

AUTHORS
       Manfred	Wassmann  <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de>  and  Till  Kamppeter
       <till.kamppeter@gmail.com> for the foomatic project using  output  from
       the associated binary.

BUGS
       Existing	 files are always conserved instead of older files being over-
       written.	So deleting the	destination directory (rm -rf dir) and calling
       foomatic-compiledb without the -f option	is recommended.

       Please post bug reports on
