NAME         top

       ppdi - import ppd files (deprecated)

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 used.

NOTES         top

       PPD files are deprecated and will no longer be supported in a
       future feature release of CUPS.  Printers that do not support IPP
       can be supported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).
