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 cumu-
       lated, 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.
