FOOMATIC-PPD-OPTIONS(1)	    General Commands Manual    FOOMATIC-PPD-OPTIONS(1)

NAME
       foomatic-ppd-options - show the PPD options

SYNOPSIS
       foomatic-ppd-options [-d=debuglevel] [ ppdfiles ]

DESCRIPTION
       The foomatic-ppd-options	program	reads the specified PPD	files or stdin
       and decodes the PPD file	to produce a list of options.  This is	really
       just a text based version of other print	configuration tools.

       The output format consists of a set of lines, each starting with	a key-
       word, followed by a set of options and the default value.  For example:

	      makemodel	= Tektronix Phaser 350 Foomatic/Postscript (recommended)
	      name=PageSize; default=Letter; options=Letter (US	Letter), \
		  A4 (A4), 11x17 (11x17), A3 (A3), A5 (A5), B5 (B5 \(JIS\)),...
	      name=PageRegion; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), A4 (A4), ...

       Each option starts with the name	tag, followed by a default  value  (if
       any),  followed	by  the	 set of	options	and a comment describing them.
       Punctuation in the comment is escaped.

   Options
       -ddebuglevel
	    Set	the debug level. 0 disables debug messages.

       [ files ]
	    The	list of	PPD files to read for options.	A '-' causes STDIN  to
	    be read.

EXIT STATUS
       foomatic-ppd-options  exits  with a 0 status if successful, and nonzero
       if an error.  An	error  message	is  also  printed  on  standard	 error
       (STDERR).
