NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       gettext - print out string using translation

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       gettext [OPTION] [[[TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID] | [-s [MSGID]...]]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       -h, --help
	      display a help message and exit

       -n     suppress trailing newline

       -V, --version
	      display version information and exit

	      retrieve	translated message corresponding to MSGID from TEXTDO-

       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.

       When used with the -s option the program behaves like the echo command.
       But it does not simply copy its arguments  to  stdout.	Instead  those
       messages found in the selected catalog are translated.

       Standard search directory: /usr/share/locale
