NAME
       msgcmp - compare message catalog and template

SYNOPSIS
       msgcmp [OPTION] def.po ref.pot

DESCRIPTION
       Compare	two  Uniforum  style  .po  files to check that both contain the same set of msgid
       strings.  The def.po file is an existing PO file with the translations.	The ref.pot  file
       is  the last created PO file, or a PO Template file (generally created by xgettext).  This
       is useful for checking that you have translated each and every message  in  your  program.
       Where  an  exact  match cannot be found, fuzzy matching is used to produce better diagnos-
       tics.

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

   Input file location:
       def.po translations

       ref.pot
	      references to the sources

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

   Operation modifiers:
       -m, --multi-domain
	      apply ref.pot to each of the domains in def.po

   Input file syntax:
       -P, --properties-input
	      input files are in Java .properties syntax

       --stringtable-input
	      input files are in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax

   Informative output:
       -h, --help
	      display this help and exit

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit
