NAME
       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msguniq [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Unifies	duplicate translations in a translation catalog.  Finds duplicate translations of
       the same message ID.  Such duplicates are invalid input for other  programs  like  msgfmt,
       msgmerge  or  msgcat.   By  default,  duplicates  are  merged  together.   When	using the
       --repeated option, only duplicates are output, and all other messages are discarded.  Com-
       ments  and  extracted comments will be cumulated, except that if --use-first is specified,
       they will be taken from the first translation.  File positions will  be	cumulated.   When
       using the --unique option, duplicates are discarded.

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