       foomatic-kitload - installs a data kit into the foomatic database.

       foomatic-kitload [ -k kit-dir] [ -d dest-dir]...

       foomatic-kitload	 installs  a  foomatic	data  kit  into the local data
       library.	 It takes a -k dirname option, where dirname is	 the  toplevel
       directory  of  a	 foomatic driver "kit".	 A "kit" is a selection of XML
       source files arranged exactly as in the source/section  of  the	master
       database (ie, opt/driver/printer/ subdirs).

       Gimp-Print's foomatic-generator produces exactly such a kit.

       Foomatic-kitload	 is  moderately paranoid about kits: the kit must con‐
       tain at least one of printer, driver or opt; the kit must contain  only
       files  ending in .xml, the kit cannot be the local library itself, etc.
       But it does not inspect the contents of the kit files in any way.

       -k dirname
		 dirname is the toplevel directory of a foomatic driver "kit".

       -d destdir
		 destdir is a prefix to prepend to  the	 install  path.	  This
		 will  not  normally  be required, but is useful if installing
		 into a temporary `staging area' prior to  installing  in  the
		 final destination.

       foomatic-kitload	 returns  0  on success, 255 or something else when an
       error occurs.

       project using output from the associated binary.
