NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       debconf-mergetemplate - merge together multiple debconf template files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

	debconf-mergetemplate [templates.ll ...] templates

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This program is useful if you have multiple debconf templates files
       which you want to merge together into one big file. All the specified
       files will be read in, merged, and output to standard output.

       This can be especially useful if you are dealing with translated template
 files. In this case, you might have your main template file, plus
       several other files provided by the translators. These files will have
       translated fields in them, and maybe the translators left in the
       english versions of the fields they translated, for their reference.

       So, you want to merge together all the translated templates files with
       your main templates file. Any fields that are unique to the translated
       files need to be added in to the correct templates, but any fields they
       have in common should be superceded by the fields in the main file
       (which might be more up-to-date).

       This program handles that case properly, just list each of the translated
 templates files, and then your main templates file last.
