1. NAME

ppdpo - ppd message catalog generator

2. SYNOPSIS

ppdpo [ -D name[=value] ] [ -I include-directory ] [ -o output-file ] source-file

3. DESCRIPTION

ppdpo extracts UI strings from PPDC source files and updates either a GNU gettext or Mac OS X strings format message catalog source file for translation.

The -D option sets the named variable for use in the source file. It is equivalent to using the #define directive in the source file.

The -I option specifies an alternate include directory; multiple -I options can be supplied to add additional directories.

The -o option specifies the output file. The supported extensions are ".po" or ".po.gz" for GNU gettext format message catalogs and ".strings" for Mac OS X strings files.
