ppdhtml — cups html summary generator (deprecated)


ppdhtml [ -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] source-file


ppdhtml reads a driver information file and produces a HTML summary page that lists all of the drivers in a file and the supported options. This program is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of CUPS.


ppdhtml supports the following options:

-D name[=value]

Sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.

-I include-directory

Specifies an alternate include directory. Multiple -I options can be supplied to add additional directories.


PPD files are deprecated and will no longer be supported in a future feature release of CUPS. Printers that do not support IPP can be supported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).
