SYNOPSIS         top

       ppdi [ -I include-directory ] [ -o source-file ] ppd-file [ ...  ppd-
       file ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       ppdi imports one or more PPD files into a PPD compiler source file.
       Multiple languages of the same PPD file are merged into a single
       printer definition to facilitate accurate changes for all
       localizations.  This program is deprecated and will be removed in a
       future release of CUPS.

OPTIONS         top

       ppdi supports the following options:

       -I include-directory
            Specifies an alternate include directory.  Multiple -I options
            can be supplied to add additional directories.

       -o source-file
            Specifies the PPD source file to update.  If the source file
            does not exist, a new source file is created.  Otherwise the
            existing file is merged with the new PPD file(s) on the command-
            line.  If no source file is specified, the filename ppdi.drv is
