       foomatic-ppdload - <put a short description here>

       foomatic-ppdload -h

       foomatic-ppdload filename.ppd printer-id

       foomatic-ppdload -R printer-id

       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.

       foomatic-ppdload returns ...

       Manfred Wassmann <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de> for the foomatic project using output from
       the associated binary.

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

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