NAME

SYNOPSIS
xgettext [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...
DESCRIPTION
Extract translatable strings from given input files. Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. Similarly for optional arguments. Input file location: INPUTFILE ... input files -f, --files-from=FILE get list of input files from FILE -D, --directory=DIRECTORY add DIRECTORY to list for input files search If input file is -, standard input is read. Output file location: -d, --default-domain=NAME use NAME.po for output (instead of messages.po) -o, --output=FILE write output to specified file -p, --output-dir=DIR output files will be placed in directory DIR If output file is -, output is written to standard output. Choice of input file language: -L, --language=NAME recognise the specified language (C, C++, ObjectiveC, PO, Shell, Python, Lisp, EmacsLisp, librep, Scheme, Smalltalk, Java, JavaProperties, C#, awk, YCP, Tcl, Perl, PHP, GCC-source, NXStringTable, RST, Glade) -C, --c++ shorthand for --language=C++ By default the language is guessed depending on the input file name extension. Input file interpretation: --from-code=NAME encoding of input files (except for Python, Tcl, Glade) By default the input files are assumed to be in ASCII. Operation mode: -j, --join-existing join messages with existing file -x, --exclude-file=FILE.po entries from FILE.po are not extracted -c, --add-comments[=TAG] place comment block with TAG (or those preceding keyword lines) in output file Language specific options: -a, --extract-all extract all strings (only languages C, C++, ObjectiveC, Shell, Python, Lisp, EmacsLisp, librep, Scheme, Java, C#, awk, Tcl, Perl, PHP, GCC-source, Glade) -k, --keyword[=WORD] additional keyword to be looked for (without WORD means not to use default keywords) (only languages C, C++, ObjectiveC, Shell, Python, Lisp, EmacsLisp, librep, Scheme, Java, C#, awk, Tcl, Perl, PHP, GCC-source, Glade) --flag=WORD:ARG:FLAG additional flag for strings inside the argument number ARG of keyword WORD (only languages C, C++, ObjectiveC, Shell, Python, Lisp, EmacsLisp, librep, Scheme, Java, C#, awk, YCP, Tcl, Perl, PHP, GCC-source) -T, --trigraphs understand ANSI C trigraphs for input (only languages C, C++, ObjectiveC) --qt recognize Qt format strings (only language C++) --kde recognize KDE 4 format strings (only language C++) --boost recognize Boost format strings (only language C++) --debug more detailed formatstring recognition result Output details: -e, --no-escape do not use C escapes in output (default) -E, --escape use C escapes in output, no extended chars --force-po write PO file even if empty -i, --indent write the .po file using indented style --no-location do not write '#: filename:line' lines -n, --add-location generate '#: filename:line' lines (default) --strict write out strict Uniforum conforming .po file --properties-output write out a Java .properties file --stringtable-output write out a NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings file -w, --width=NUMBER set output page width --no-wrap do not break long message lines, longer than the output page width, into several lines -s, --sort-output generate sorted output -F, --sort-by-file sort output by file location --omit-header don't write header with `msgid ""' entry --copyright-holder=STRING set copyright holder in output --foreign-user omit FSF copyright in output for foreign user --package-name=PACKAGE set package name in output --package-version=VERSION set package version in output --msgid-bugs-address=EMAIL@ADDRESS set report address for msgid bugs -m, --msgstr-prefix[=STRING] use STRING or "" as prefix for msgstr entries -M, --msgstr-suffix[=STRING] use STRING or "" as suffix for msgstr entries Informative output: -h, --help display this help and exit -V, --version output version information and exit
