          cupsfilter - convert a file to another format using cups
          filters (deprecated)

          cupsfilter [ --list-filters ] [ -D ] [ -U user ] [ -c
          config-file ] [ -d printer ] [ -e ] [ -i mime/type ] [ -j

          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. The converted file is sent
          to the standard output.

               Do not actually run the filters, just print the filters
               used to stdout.

          -D   Delete the input file after conversion.

          -U user
               Specifies the username passed to the filters. The
               default is the name of the current user.

          -c config-file
               Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file.

          -d printer
               Uses information from the named printer.

          -e   Use every filter from the PPD file.

          -i mime/type
               Specifies the source file type. The default file type
               is guessed using the filename and contents of the 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

          -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.

          -u   Delete the PPD file after conversion.

          cupsfilter returns a non-zero exit status on any error.

          All of the standard cups(1) environment variables affect the
          operation of cupsfilter.


          CUPS printer drivers, filters, and backends are deprecated
          and will no longer be supported in a future feature release
          of CUPS.  Printers that do not support IPP can be supported
          using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).

          Unlike when printing, filters run using the cupsfilter com-
          mand use the current user and security session. This may
          result in different output or unexpected behavior.

          The following command will generate a PDF preview of job 42
          for a printer named "myprinter" and save it to a file named
