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. Comments 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. 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 -.
