       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog

       msguniq [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

       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.  Com-
       ments  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:
	      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:
       -d, --repeated
	      print only duplicates

       -u, --unique
	      print only unique messages, discard duplicates

   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

       -s, --sort-output

       -F, --sort-by-file
