NAME
       msgcomm - match two message catalogs

SYNOPSIS
       msgcomm [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       Find  messages  which  are  common to two or more of the specified PO files.  By using the
       --more-than option, greater commonality may be  requested  before  messages  are  printed.
       Conversely, the --less-than option may be used to specify less commonality before messages
       are printed (i.e.  --less-than=2 will only print the unique messages).  Translations, com-
       ments  and extracted comments will be preserved, but only from the first PO file to define
       them.  File positions from all PO files will be cumulated.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
