I get very many PPD files from printer manufacturers to be included in the OpenPrinting database and in Linux distributions. Many of these PPDs failed the current cupstestppd (CUPS 1.3.8).

Problem is now that a PPD which fails cupstestppd is not necessarily rejected by CUPS when creating a print queue with it. So I cannot use cupstestppd to determine whether I MUST patch a PPD to assure that CUPS will accept it. I also cannot use cupstestppd in a printer setup tool to pre-check whether the PPD used for the print queue (for example a PPD supplied by the user) will get accepted by CUPS.

So what I would like to have is a command line switch in cupstestppd making it fail PPDs which CUPS would not accept and pass PPDs which CUPS would accept.

Um, that's what the "-r" option does Till...

(-r == relaxed)
