A CDE Definition
(1) (Binary Printer Description file) The binary version of a PostScript PPD file. PostScript converts PPD files into BPD files for quick reference and repeats the conversion when the PPD file changes. See PPD file.
(2) (Burn PerioD file) An optional file of times and dates for the FARSITE program that simulates forest fire growth. It is used to stop simulation during low activity. For information, visit http://farsite.org.
(PostScript Printer Description file) A PostScript file that describes the features of a particular printer or imagesetter. Capabilities such as paper sizes, number of input trays and duplexing are contained in the file, and the PostScript driver uses this data to command the printer properly. When a PPD file is unavailable for a particular printer, a "generic.ppd" file can be used that defines standard letter sizes and basic features only. The PPD file is an ASCII file that can be transferred between Windows and Mac. See PPD and BPD file.
