       ngettext - translate message and choose plural form


       The  ngettext  program  translates a natural language message into the user's language, by
       looking up the translation in a message catalog, and chooses the appropriate plural  form,
       which depends on the number COUNT and the language of the message catalog where the trans-
       lation was found.

       Display native language translation of a textual message whose grammatical form depends on
       a number.

       -d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN
	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       -h, --help
	      display this help and exit

       -V, --version
	      display version information and exit

	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

	      translate MSGID (singular) / MSGID-PLURAL (plural)

       COUNT  choose singular/plural form based on this value

       If  the	TEXTDOMAIN  parameter is not given, the domain is determined from the environment
       variable TEXTDOMAIN.  If the message catalog  is  not  found  in  the  regular  directory,
       another	location  can be specified with the environment variable TEXTDOMAINDIR.  Standard
       search directory: /usr/local/share/locale
