NAME
       maketext - translate and make messages

SYNOPSIS
	 maketext [OPTION] [--domain=TEXTDOMAIN] MSGKEY [PARAM...]
	 maketext [OPTION] -s MSGID [PARAM...]

DESCRIPTION
       The "maketext" script translates a natural language message into the user's language, by
       looking up the translation in a message MO file, and process the plural transformation
       with Maketext.

       The "maketext" script is a command-line interface to Locale::Maketext::Gettext(3) (and
       Locale::Maketext(3)).  It can be used in shell scripts, etc, to translate, maketext and
       return the result.  By this way, it enables Maketext to be integrated into other
       programming languages/systems, like bash/csh, python, PHP, C, etc.  It works like the
       command-line program gettext.

       For example:

	 % maketext -s "[*,_1,virus was,viruses were] found in [*,_2,file,files]." 0 1
	 0 viruses were found in 1 file.
	 % maketext -s "[*,_1,virus was,viruses were] found in [*,_2,file,files]." 1 3
	 1 virus was found in 3 files.
	 %

OPTIONS
       -d,--domain=TEXTDOMAIN
	   Retrieve translated messages from TEXTDOMAIN.

       -s  Adds a new line to the end of the output so that it behaves like the `echo' or the
	   `gettext' command.

       -h,--help
	   Display the help messages.

       -V,--version
	   Display version information and exit.

       MSGKEY
	   The original text used to look up translated text.

       PARAM...
	   Parameters to Maketext for the plural and other text functions.

ENVIRONMENT
       TEXTDOMAIN
	   TEXTDOMAIN is used to determine the text domain when the -d parameter is not given.

       TEXTDOMAINDIR
	   TEXTDOMAINDIR is used to search the message catelog/MO file if it does not reside in
	   the system locale directories.

NOTES
       Maketext language function override, like "quant" or "numerate", is not available here.
       Suggestions are welcome.

       The current system locale directory search order is: /usr/share/locale, /usr/lib/locale,
       /usr/local/share/locale, /usr/local/lib/locale.	Suggestions are welcome.
