NAME
ppdi - import ppd files (deprecated) SYNOPSIS
ppdi [ -I include-directory ] [ -o source-file ] ppd-file [ ... ppd-file ] DESCRIPTION
ppdi imports one or more PPD files into a PPD compiler source file. Multiple languages of the same PPD file are merged into a single printer definition to facilitate accurate changes for all localizations. This program is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of CUPS. OPTIONS
ppdi supports the following options: -I include-directory Specifies an alternate include directory. Multiple -I options can be supplied to add additional directories. -o source-file Specifies the PPD source file to update. If the source file does not exist, a new source file is created. Otherwise the existing file is merged with the new PPD file(s) on the command-line. If no source file is specified, the filename ppdi.drv is used. SEE ALSO
