DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

       -d, --default-domain=NAME
	      use NAME.po for output (instead of messages.po)

       -D, --directory=DIRECTORY

       -e, --no-escape
	      do not use C escapes in output (default)

       -E, --escape
	      use C escapes in output, no extended chars

       -f, --files-from=FILE
	      get list of input files from FILE

	      write PO file even if empty

       -F, --sort-by-file
	      sort output by file location

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

       -i, --indent
	      write the .po file using indented style

	      do not write '#: filename:line' lines

       -n, --add-location
	      generate '#: filename:line' lines (default)

	      don't write header with `msgid ""' entry

       -o, --output=FILE
	      write output to specified file

       -p, --output-dir=DIR
	      output files will be placed in directory DIR

       -s, --sort-output
	      generate sorted output and remove duplicates

	      write out strict Uniforum conforming .po file

       -T, --trigraphs
	      understand ANSI C trigraphs for input

       -u, --unique
	      shorthand for --less-than=2, requests that only unique  messages
	      be printed

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit

       -w, --width=NUMBER
	      set output page width

       -<, --less-than=NUMBER
	      print messages with less than this many definitions, defaults to
	      infinite if not set

       ->, --more-than=NUMBER
	      print messages with more than this many definitions, defaults to
	      1 if not set

       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 preserved, but only
       from  the  first  PO  file  to define them.  File positions from all PO
       files will be preserved.
