       foomatic-compiledb - compile the foomatic driver database

       foomatic-compiledb [-f ] [-j n ] [ driver ...  ]

       foomatic-compiledb  generates  all  Foomatic  data  files for a given spooler (or Foomatic
       combo XML files) and either all drivers/printers, or a selected range of drivers.  It gen-
       erally  should  not  be necessary except for people who want to generate a set of Foomatic
       data files for distribution. For configuring single printers foomatic-datafile  and  espe-
       cially foomatic-configure will automagically compute just what they need.

       -t type	 Output  file type, one of ppd, cups, lprng, lpd, ppr, pdq, direct, oldcups, xml.
		 Note: "oldcups" are the old-style CUPS-O-Matic PPDs (for XPP 1.0 and older,  KDE

       -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)

       foomatic-compiledb returns 0 unless something unexpected happens.

       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.

       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.

       Please send bug reports to foomatic-devel@linuxprinting.org.
