       msgcat - combines several message catalogs

       msgcat [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

       Concatenates  and merges the specified PO files.  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, comments and extract comments will be cumu-
       lated, except that if --use-first is specified, they will be taken 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.

   Input file location:
       INPUTFILE ...
	      input files

       -f, --files-from=FILE
	      get list of input files from FILE

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

       If input file 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:
       -<, --less-than=NUMBER
	      print  messages  with  less than this many definitions, defaults to infinite if not

       ->, --more-than=NUMBER
	      print messages with more than this many definitions, defaults to 0 if not set

       -u, --unique
	      shorthand for --less-than=2, requests that only unique messages be printed

   Output details:
       -t, --to-code=NAME
	      encoding for output

	      use first available translation for each message, don't merge several translations

       -e, --no-escape
	      do not use C escapes in output (default)

       -E, --escape
	      use C escapes in output, no extended chars

	      write PO file even if empty

       -i, --indent
	      write the .po file using indented style

	      do not write '#: filename:line' lines

       -n, --add-location
	      generate '#: filename:line' lines (default)

	      write out strict Uniforum conforming .po file

       -w, --width=NUMBER
	      set output page width

	      do not break long message lines, longer than the output page  width,  into  several

       -s, --sort-output
	      generate sorted output

       -F, --sort-by-file
	      sort output by file location

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

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit
