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 dis-
       tribution. 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 already 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.kamp-
       peter@gmx.net> for the foomatic project using output from the associated binary.

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