msggrep - pattern matching on message catalog
Extracts all messages of a translation catalog that match a given pattern or belong to some given source files. Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. Input file location: INPUTFILE input PO file -D, --directory=DIRECTORY add DIRECTORY to list for input files search If no input file is given or if it 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: [-N SOURCEFILE]... [-M DOMAINNAME]... [-K MSGID-PATTERN] [-T MSGSTR-PATTERN] [-C COMMENT-PATTERN] A message is selected if it comes from one of the specified source files, or if it comes from one of the specified domains, or if -K is given and its key (msgid or msgid_plural) matches MSGID-PATTERN, or if -T is given and its translation (msgstr) matches MSGSTR-PATTERN, or if -C is given and the translator's comment matches COMMENT-PATTERN. When more than one selection criterion is specified, the set of selected messages is the union of the selected messages of each criterion. MSGID-PATTERN or MSGSTR-PATTERN syntax: [-E | -F] [-e PATTERN | -f FILE]... PATTERNs are basic regular expressions by default, or extended regular expressions if -E is given, or fixed strings if -F is given. -N, --location=SOURCEFILE select messages extracted from SOURCEFILE -M, --domain=DOMAINNAME select messages belonging to domain DOMAINNAME -K, --msgid start of patterns for the msgid -T, --msgstr start of patterns for the msgstr -E, --extended-regexp PATTERN is an extended regular expression -F, --fixed-strings PATTERN is a set of newline-separated strings -e, --regexp=PATTERN use PATTERN as a regular expression -f, --file=FILE obtain PATTERN from FILE -i, --ignore-case ignore case distinctions Output details: --no-escape do not use C escapes in output (default) --escape use C escapes in output, no extended chars --force-po write PO file even if empty --indent indented output style --no-location suppress '#: filename:line' lines --add-location preserve '#: filename:line' lines (default) --strict strict Uniforum output style -w, --width=NUMBER set output page width --no-wrap do not break long message lines, longer than the output page width, into several lines --sort-output generate sorted output --sort-by-file sort output by file location Informative output: -h, --help display this help and exit -V, --version output version information and exit
