NAME
       cupstestppd - test conformance of ppd files

SYNOPSIS
       cupstestppd  [ -R rootdir ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [-r] [ -v[v] ] file‐
       name.ppd[.gz] [ ... filenameN.ppd[.gz] ]
       cupstestppd [ -R rootdir ] [ -W category ] [ -q ] [-r] [ -v[v] ] -

DESCRIPTION
       cupstestppd tests the conformance of PPD files to the Adobe  PostScript
       Printer	Description file format specification version 4.3. It can also
       be used to list the supported options and  available  fonts  in	a  PPD
       file. The results of testing and any other output are sent to the stan‐
       dard output.

       The first form of cupstestppd tests one or more PPD files on  the  com‐
       mand-line.  The second form tests the PPD file provided on the standard
       input.

OPTIONS
       cupstestppd supports the following options:

       -R rootdir
	    Specifies an alternate root directory for the filter,  pre-filter,
	    and other support file checks.

       -W constraints
	    Report all UIConstraint errors as warnings.

       -W defaults
	    Except  for size-related options, report all default option errors
	    as warnings.

       -W filters
	    Report all filter errors as warnings.

       -W translations
	    Report all translation errors as warnings.

       -W all
	    Report all of the previous errors as warnings.

       -W none
	    Report all of the previous errors as errors.

       -q
	    Specifies that no information should be displayed.

       -r
	    Relaxes the PPD conformance requirements  so  that	common	white‐
	    space,  control character, and formatting problems are not treated
	    as hard errors.

       -v
	    Specifies that detailed conformance testing results should be dis‐
	    played rather than the concise PASS/FAIL/ERROR status.

       -vv
	    Specifies that all information in the PPD file should be displayed
	    in addition to the detailed conformance testing results.

       The -q, -v, and -vv options are mutually exclusive.

EXIT STATUS
       cupstestppd returns zero on success and non-zero on  error.  The	 error
       codes are as follows:

       1
	    Bad command-line arguments or missing PPD filename.

       2
	    Unable to open or read PPD file.

       3
	    The PPD file contains format errors that cannot be skipped.

       4
	    The PPD file does not conform to the Adobe PPD specification.

EXAMPLES
       The  following command will test all PPD files under the current direc‐
       tory and print the names of each file that does not conform:

	   find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; -print

       The next command tests all PPD files under the  current	directory  and
       print  detailed	conformance  testing results for the files that do not
       conform:

	   find . -name \*.ppd \! -exec cupstestppd -q '{}' \; \
	       -exec cupstestppd -v '{}' \;
