NAME

cupsfilter - convert a file to another format using cups filters  

SYNOPSIS

cupsfilter [ -c config-file ] [ -e ] -j job-id[,N] [ -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.
-e

Use every filter from the PPD file.
-j job-id[,N]

Converts document N from the specified job. If N is omitted, document 1 is converted.
-m mime/type

Specifies the destination file type. The default file type is application/pdf. Use printer/foo to convert to the printer format defined by the filters in the PPD file.
-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.
