       ppdc  compiles PPDC source files	into one or more PPD files.  This pro-
       gram is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of CUPS.

       ppdc 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.

       -c message-catalog
	    Specifies a	single message catalog	file  in  GNU  gettext	(file-
	    name.po) or	Apple strings (filename.strings) format	to be used for

       -d output-directory
	    Specifies the output directory for PPD files.  The default	output
	    directory is "ppd".

       -l language(s)
	    Specifies  one  or	more  languages	to use when localizing the PPD
	    file(s).  The default language is "en" (English).  Separate	multi-
	    ple	      languages	      with	 commas,      for      example
	    "de_DE,en_UK,es_ES,es_MX,es_US,fr_CA,fr_FR,it_IT" will create  PPD
	    files  with	 German,  UK English, Spanish (Spain, Mexico, and US),
	    French (France and Canada),	and Italian languages in each file.

       -m   Specifies that the output filename should be based on  the	Model-
	    Name value instead of FileName or PCFilenName.

       -t   Specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of generated.

       -v   Specifies  verbose	output,	 basically  a  running status of which
	    files are being loaded or written.	-z  Generates  compressed  PPD
	    files  (filename.ppd.gz).  The default is to generate uncompressed
	    PPD	files.



       --lf Specifies the line ending to use - carriage	return,	 carriage  re-
	    turn and line feed,	or line	feed alone.  The default is to use the
	    line feed character	alone.
