NAME
       cupsfilter - convert a file to another format using cups filters

SYNOPSIS
       cupsfilter  [ -D ] [ -U user ] [ -c config-file ] [ -d printer ] [ -e ]
       [ -i mime/type ] [ -j job-id[,N] ] [ -m mime/type ] [ -n copies ] [  -o

DESCRIPTION
       cupsfilter is a front-end to the CUPS filter subsystem which allows you
       to convert a file to a specific format, just as if you had printed  the
       file  through  CUPS.  By	 default, cupsfilter generates a PDF file. The
       converted file is sent to the standard output.

OPTIONS
       -D
	    Delete the input file after conversion.

       -U user
	    Specifies the username passed to the filters. The default  is  the
	    name of the current user.

       -c config-file
	    Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file.

       -d printer
	    Uses information from the named printer.

       -e
	    Use every filter from the PPD file.

       -i mime/type
	    Specifies  the  source file type. The default file type is guessed
	    using the filename and contents of the file.

       -j job-id[,N]
	    Converts document N from the specified job. If N is omitted, docu‐
	    ment 1 is converted.

       -m mime/type
	    Specifies  the  destination	 file  type.  The default file type is
	    application/pdf.  Use printer/foo to convert to the printer format
	    defined by the filters in the PPD file.

       -n copies
	    Specifies the number of copies to generate.

       -o name=value
	    Specifies options to pass to the CUPS filters.
