It is equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file. .PP The \fI-I\fR option specifies an alternate include directory; multiple \fI-I\fR options can be supplied to add additional directories. .PP The \fI-c\fR option specifies a single message catalog file in GNU gettext source format (filename.po) to be used for localization. .PP The \fI-d\fR option specifies the output directory for PPD files. The default output directory is "ppd". .PP The \fI-l\fR option 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 file. .PP The \fI-m\fR option specifies that the output filename should be based on the ModelName value instead of FileName or PCFilenName. .PP The \fI-t\fR option specifies that PPD files should be tested instead of generated. .PP The \fI-v\fR option provides more verbose output, basically a running status of which files are being loaded or written. .PP The \fI-z\fR option generates compressed PPD files (filename.ppd.gz). The default is to generate uncompressed PPD files. .PP The \fI--cr\fR, \fI--crlf\fR, and \fI--lf\fR options specify the line ending to use - carriage return, carriage return and line feed, or line feed. The default is to use the line feed character alone. .SH SEE ALSO ppdhtml(1), ppdi(1), ppdmerge(1), ppdpo(1), ppdcfile(5) .br http://localhost:631/help .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 2007-2009 by Apple Inc. .\" .\" End of "$Id: ppdc.man 7600 2008-05-20 21:06:23Z mike $". .\"
