NAME
       foomatic-ppdload - <put a short description here>

SYNOPSIS
       foomatic-ppdload -h

       foomatic-ppdload filename.ppd printer-id

       foomatic-ppdload -R printer-id

DESCRIPTION
       foomatic-ppdload takes a ppd filename and a printer ID as arguments.  It parses a PPD file
       and writes option data into the foomatic database for use with the foomatic  "ppd"  driver
       and that printer.

       With  the  -R  option  you can remove a printer from the "ppd" driver, and with -h a short
       help text is shown.

       Right now, it will handle Boolean and  PickOne  options	that  go  in  the  Prolog,  Docu-
       mentSetup, or PageSetup spots.  Also, PPD interoption constraints (not to be confused with
       foomatic option to printer and driver mapping constraints) are not supported by	foomatic.
       And of course, the interesting color and font information from the PPD has no place in the
       current foomatic schema.  All this will change over time.

EXIT STATUS
       foomatic-ppdload returns ...

BUGS
       There are several limitations, but it's an interesting experiment.
