       foomatic-ppd-options - show the PPD options


       foomatic-ppd-options [-d=debuglevel] [ ppdfiles ]


       The foomatic-ppd-options program reads the specified PPD files or stdin
       and decodes the PPD file to produce a list of options.  This is  really
       just a text based version of other print configuration tools.

       The  output  format  consists  of  a set of lines, each starting with a
       keyword, followed by a set of  options  and  the  default  value.   For

              makemodel = Tektronix Phaser 350 Foomatic/Postscript (recommended)
              name=PageSize; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), \
                  A4 (A4), 11x17 (11x17), A3 (A3), A5 (A5), B5 (B5 \(JIS\)),...
              name=PageRegion; default=Letter; options=Letter (US Letter), A4 (A4), ...

       Each  option  starts with the name tag, followed by a default value (if
       any), followed by the set of options and  a  comment  describing  them.
       Punctuation in the comment is escaped.

            Set the debug level. 0 disables debug messages.

            The  list of PPD files to read for options.  A '-' causes STDIN to

       foomatic-ppd-options exits with a 0 status if successful,  and  nonzero
       if  an  error.   An  error  message  is  also printed on standard error

       Probably.  But it has been tested.
