foomatic-ppd-options - show the PPD options


foomatic-ppd-options [-d=debuglevel] [ ppdfiles ]


The foomatic-ppd-options program reads the specified PPD files or stdin and decodes the
PPD file to produce a list of options. This is really just a text based version of other
print configuration tools.

The output format consists of a set of lines, each starting with a keyword, followed by a
set of options and the default value. For example:

makemodel = Tektronix Phaser 350 Foomatic/Postscript (recommended)
name=PageSize; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), \
A4 (A4), 11x17 (11x17), A3 (A3), A5 (A5), B5 (B5 \(JIS\)),...
name=PageRegion; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), A4 (A4), ...

Each option starts with the name tag, followed by a default value (if any), followed by
the set of options and a comment describing them. Punctuation in the comment is escaped.

Set the debug level. 0 disables debug messages.

[ files ]
The list of PPD files to read for options. A '-' causes STDIN to be read.


foomatic-ppd-options exits with a 0 status if successful, and nonzero if an error. An
error message is also printed on standard error (STDERR).
