SYNOPSIS
     conv_lpd [-c printers | -c printcap]  [-n] file

DESCRIPTION
     conv_lpd converts   LPD  printer  configuration  information
     from   file  to  a  printers.conf  or  a  printcap file (see
     printers.conf(4)). file specifies  the  name  of  the  input
     file,  and  can be either in printers.conf or  printcap for-
     mat. If  file is in  printers.conf format, it converts it to
     a  printcap  file.  If  file is in  printcap format, it con-
     verts it to a printers.conf file.
