NAME
msgcat - combines several message catalogs
SYNOPSIS
msgcat [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...
DESCRIPTION
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 cumulated, 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 set ->, --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 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 --force-po write PO file even if empty -i, --indent write the .po file using indented style --no-location do not write '#: filename:line' lines -n, --add-location generate '#: filename:line' lines (default) --strict write out strict Uniforum conforming .po file -w, --width=NUMBER set output page width --no-wrap do not break long message lines, longer than the output page width, into several lines -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
