FOOMATIC-COMPILEDB(1)					 FOOMATIC-COMPILEDB(1)

NAME
       foomatic-compiledb - Compile the Foomatic printer/driver database

SYNOPSIS
       foomatic-compiledb [ -t type ] [ -f ] [ -j n ] [	 driver ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       foomatic-compiledb  generates all PPD files or Foomatic combo XML files
       for all possible printer/driver combos, or only for a selected range of
       drivers.	  It  generally	 should not be necessary except for people who
       want to generate a set of Foomatic data	files  for  distribution.  For
       configuring   single   printers	 foomatic-ppdfile(1)   and  especially
       foomatic-configure(1) will automagically compute just what they need.

   Options
       -t type	 Output file type, either ppd or xml.

       -f	 Force: Write  into  the  destination  directory  even	if  it
		 already exists.

       -j n	 n = number of work processes to run

       driver ...
		 only generate data files for these driver(s)

SEE ALSO
       foomatic-ppdfile(1),foomatic-configure(1)

EXIT STATUS
       foomatic-compiledb returns 0 unless something unexpected happens.

AUTHORS
       Manfred	Wassmann  <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de>  and  Till  Kamppeter
       <till.kamppeter@gmx.net> for the foomatic project using output from the
       associated binary.

BUGS
       Existing	 files are always conserved instead of older files being over‐
       written. So deleting the destination directory (rm -rf dir) and calling
       foomatic-compiledb without the -f option is recommended.

       Please post bug reports on
