NAME         top

       ppdpo - ppd message catalog generator (deprecated)

SYNOPSIS         top

       ppdpo [ -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] [ -o output-
       file ] source-file

DESCRIPTION         top

       ppdpo extracts UI strings from PPDC source files and updates
       either a GNU gettext or macOS strings format message catalog
       source file for translation.  This program is deprecated and will
       be removed in a future release of CUPS.

OPTIONS         top

       ppdpo supports the following options:

       -D name[=value]
            Sets the named variable for use in the source file.  It is
            equivalent to using the #define directive in the source

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

       -o output-file
            Specifies the output file.  The supported extensions are .po
            or .po.gz for GNU gettext format message catalogs and
            .strings for macOS strings files.

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).
