SYNOPSIS

cupsfilter [ -c config-file ] [ -m mime/type ] [ -n copies ] [ -o name=value ] [ -p filename.ppd ] [ -t title ] filename

DESCRIPTION

cupsfilter is a front-end to the CUPS filter subsystem which allows you to convert a file to a specific format, just as if you had printed the file through CUPS. By default, cupsfilter generates a PDF file.

OPTIONS

-c config-file
  Uses the named cupsd.conf configuration file.
-m mime/type
  Specifies the destination file type. The default file type is application/pdf.
-n copies
  Specifies the number of copies to generate.
-o name=value
  Specifies options to pass to the CUPS filters.
-p filename.ppd
  Specifies the PPD file to use.
-t title
  Specifies the document title.

KNOWN ISSUES

cupsfilter currently does not use the filters defined in the PPD file. This will be addressed in a future CUPS release.
