INTLTOOL-UPDATE(8)					      System Manager's Manual						INTLTOOL-UPDATE(8)

intltool-update - updates PO template file and merge translations with it SYNOPSIS
intltool-update [option]... intltool-update LANGCODE DESCRIPTION
intltool-update generates new po file templates from source code, and merges existing translations with these new po templates. You must change working directory to the subdirectory containing translations (usually "po/") before running intltool-update. OPTIONS
When executing intltool-update , only one mode of operation is allowed each time. Mode of operation -p --pot Generate po template (.pot) only. -s --headers Executes intltool-extract(8) to extract strings inside XML/INI style files listed in, and writes the extracted strings into header files, so that the strings can be recognised by xgettext(1). -m --maintain Search for left out files, which should have been listed in or POTFILES.skip. A list of all these files are written into another file called "missing". -r --report Display a status report for all translations in the software. -d LANGCODE --dist LANGCODE Merge LANGCODE.po with existing PO template. Other options -g NAME --gettext-package=NAME Manually specify PO template file name, instead of determining the name automatically from source. Useful with -p/--pot option. This option has an additional effect: the name of current working directory is no more limited to "po" or "po-*". -o FILENAME --output-file=FILENAME Manually specify output FILENAME after merging old translation with PO template. Useful either with -d/--dist option or without any option. -x --verbose Display lots of feedback. --version Show version information. --help Show usage and basic help information. EXAMPLES
Creates a new PO template from source code, and name it foo.pot: intltool-update --pot --gettext-package=foo Updates translation file xy.po using existing po template called "bar.pot", and writes output into "xy1.po": intltool-update --dist --gettext-package=bar --output-file=xy1.po xy Creates new PO template and updates translation file xy.po (xy.po is overwritten with new content): intltool-update xy (same as intltool-update --pot && intltool-update --dist xy) FILES
po/ Contains list of source files which contain translatable strings, one file per line. po/POTFILES.skip po/POTFILES.ignore (obsolete) Contains list of source files which should be ignored when searching for translatable strings. REPORTING BUGS
