ppdc supports the following options:
Sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is
equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.
Specifies an alternate include directory. Multiple -I options
can be supplied to add additional directories.
Specifies a single message catalog file in GNU gettext
(filename.po) or Apple strings (filename.strings) format to be
used for localization.
Specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default
output directory is "ppd".
Specifies one or more languages to use when localizing the PPD
file(s). The default language is "en" (English). Separate
multiple languages with commas, for example
"de_DE,en_UK,es_ES,es_MX,es_US,fr_CA,fr_FR,it_IT" will create
PPD files with German, UK English, Spanish (Spain, Mexico, and
US), French (France and Canada), and Italian languages in each
-m Specifies that the output filename should be based on the
ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName.
-t Specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of generated.
-v Specifies verbose output, basically a running status of which
files are being loaded or written. -z Generates compressed PPD
files (filename.ppd.gz). The default is to generate
uncompressed PPD files.
--cr--crlf--lf Specifies the line ending to use - carriage return, carriage
return and line feed, or line feed alone. The default is to use
the line feed character alone.
