cupsfilter - convert a file to another format using cups filters SYNOPSIS
cupsfilter [ --list-filters ] [ -D ] [ -U user ] [ -c config-file ] [ -d printer ] [ -e ] [ -i mime/type ] [ -j job-id[,N] ] [ -m mime/type ] [ -n copies ] [ -o name=value ] [ -p filename.ppd ] [ -t title ] [ -u ] filename DESCRIPTION
cupsfilter is a front-end to the CUPS filter subsystem which allows you to convert a file to a specific format, just as if you had printed the file through CUPS. By default, cupsfilter generates a PDF file. The converted file is sent to the standard output. OPTIONS
--list-filters Do not actually run the filters, just print the filters used to stdout. -D Delete the input file after conversion. -U user Specifies the username passed to the filters. The default is the name of the current user. -c config-file Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file. -d printer Uses information from the named printer. -e Use every filter from the PPD file. -i mime/type Specifies the source file type. The default file type is guessed using the filename and contents of the file. -j job-id[,N] Converts document N from the specified job. If N is omitted, document 1 is converted. -m mime/type Specifies the destination file type. The default file type is application/pdf. Use printer/foo to convert to the printer format defined by the filters in the PPD file. -n copies Specifies the number of copies to generate. -o name=value Specifies options to pass to the CUPS filters. -p filename.ppd Specifies the PPD file to use. -t title Specifies the document title. -u Delete the PPD file after conversion. EXIT STATUS
cupsfilter returns a non-zero exit status on any error. ENVIRONMENT
All of the standard cups(1) environment variables affect the operation of cupsfilter. FILES
/etc/cups/cups-files.conf /etc/cups/*.convs /etc/cups/*.types /usr/share/cups/mime/*.convs /usr/share/cups/mime/*.types NOTES
Unlike when printing, filters run using the cupsfilter command use the current user and security session. This may result in different out- put or unexpected behavior. EXAMPLE
The following command will generate a PDF preview of job 42 for a printer named "myprinter" and save it to a file named "preview.pdf": cupsfilter -m application/pdf -d myprinter -j 42 >preview.pdf SEE ALSO
