Hierarchy of PPML transform options

InfoPrint assigns a hierarchy to its use of options and configuration-file information when it runs the PPML transform program. The following lists the order in which InfoPrint uses options and information specified in configuration files:

  1. Any values you specify on the command line, including values in the configuration file you specify with the -C option.

    InfoPrint commands process options from left to right. If you enter the same option more than once, InfoPrint uses the last occurrence of the option to determine the value to use. For example, if you specify this command:

    ppml2afp -C config.file -r240 -r300 myfile.ps
    The ppml2afp command transforms the file using 300-pel resolution. InfoPrint ignores the resolution value specified in the configuration file config.file and the first -r240 option and value.

  2. Values are specified in the default transform command configuration file, which is /usr/lpp/psf/ppml2afp/ppml2afp.cfg. InfoPrint ignores values in the default transform command configuration file if you invoke the transform command indirectly by submitting a job to print."
  3. Default values that are built into InfoPrint. These are the same as the transform defaults.
