       msgcomm - match two message catalogs

       msgcomm [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

       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, com-
       ments  and  extract  comments will be preserved, but only 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 1 if not set

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

   Output details:
       -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

	      don't write header with `msgid ""' entry

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

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit
