NAME
       msggrep - pattern matching on message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msggrep [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Extracts  all  messages	of  a translation catalog that match a given pattern or belong to
       some given source files.

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

   Input file location:
       INPUTFILE
	      input PO file

       -D, --directory=DIRECTORY
	      add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

       If no input file is given or if it is -, standard input is read.

   Output file location:
       -o, --output-file=FILE
	      write output to specified file

       The results are written to standard output if no output file is specified or if it is -.

   Message selection:
	      [-N SOURCEFILE]... [-M DOMAINNAME]...  [-J MSGCTXT-PATTERN] [-K MSGID-PATTERN]  [-T
	      MSGSTR-PATTERN] [-C COMMENT-PATTERN] [-X EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN]

       A  message  is selected if it comes from one of the specified source files, or if it comes
       from one of the specified domains, or if -J is given and  its  context  (msgctxt)  matches
       MSGCTXT-PATTERN,  or if -K is given and its key (msgid or msgid_plural) matches MSGID-PAT-
       TERN, or if -T is given and its translation (msgstr) matches MSGSTR-PATTERN, or if  -C  is
       given  and  the	translator's  comment  matches COMMENT-PATTERN, or if -X is given and the
       extracted comment matches EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN.

       When more than one selection criterion is specified, the set of selected messages  is  the
       union of the selected messages of each criterion.

       MSGCTXT-PATTERN	or  MSGID-PATTERN  or MSGSTR-PATTERN or COMMENT-PATTERN or EXTRACTED-COM-
       MENT-PATTERN syntax:

	      [-E | -F] [-e PATTERN | -f FILE]...

       is given, or fixed strings if -F is given.
