NAME
       cupstestppd - test conformance of ppd files

SYNOPSIS
       cupstestppd  [  -I  category  ] [ -R rootdir ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [-r] [ -v[v] ] file-
       name.ppd[.gz] [ ... filenameN.ppd[.gz] ]
       cupstestppd [ -R rootdir ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [-r] [ -v[v] ] -

DESCRIPTION
       cupstestppd tests the conformance of PPD files to the Adobe PostScript Printer Description
       file  format  specification version 4.3. It can also be used to list the supported options
       and available fonts in a PPD file. The results of testing and any other output are sent to
       the standard output.

       The  first form of cupstestppd tests one or more PPD files on the command-line. The second
       form tests the PPD file provided on the standard input.

OPTIONS
       cupstestppd supports the following options:

       -I filename
	    Ignores all PCFileName warnings.

       -I filters
	    Ignores all filter errors.

       -I profiles
	    Ignores all profile errors.

       -R rootdir
	    Specifies an alternate root directory for the filter, pre-filter, and  other  support
	    file checks.

       -W constraints
	    Report all UIConstraint errors as warnings.

       -W defaults
	    Except for size-related options, report all default option errors as warnings.

       -W filters
	    Report all filter errors as warnings.

       -W profiles
	    Report all profile errors as warnings.

       -W sizes
	    Report all media size errors as warnings.

       -W translations
	    Report all translation errors as warnings.

       -W all
	    Report all of the previous errors as warnings.

       -W none
	    Report all of the previous errors as errors.

       -q
	    Specifies that no information should be displayed.

       -r
	    Relaxes  the  PPD conformance requirements so that common whitespace, control charac-
	    ter, and formatting problems are not treated as hard errors.

       -v
	    Specifies that detailed conformance testing results should be displayed  rather  than
	    the concise PASS/FAIL/ERROR status.

       -vv
	    Specifies that all information in the PPD file should be displayed in addition to the
	    detailed conformance testing results.

       The -q, -v, and -vv options are mutually exclusive.

EXIT STATUS
       cupstestppd returns zero on success and non-zero on error. The error codes are as follows:

       1
	    Bad command-line arguments or missing PPD filename.

       2
	    Unable to open or read PPD file.

       3
	    The PPD file contains format errors that cannot be skipped.

       4
	    The PPD file does not conform to the Adobe PPD specification.

EXAMPLES
       The following command will test all PPD files under the current directory  and  print  the
       names of each file that does not conform:

	   find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; -print

       The  next  command tests all PPD files under the current directory and print detailed con-
       formance testing results for the files that do not conform:

	   find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; \
	       -exec cupstestppd -v '{}' \;
