NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       msgmerge - merge two message catalogs

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       msgmerge [OPTION] def.po ref.po

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

       -C, --compendium=FILE
	      additional library of message  translations,  may  be  specified
	      more than once

       -D, --directory=DIRECTORY
	      add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

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

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

	      write PO file even if empty

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

       -i, --indent
	      indented output style

       -o, --output-file=FILE
	      result will be written to FILE

	      suppress '#: filename:line' lines

	      preserve '#: filename:line' lines (default)

	      strict Uniforum output style

       -v, --verbose
	      increase verbosity level

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit

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

       Merges  two  Uniforum  style .po files together.  The def.po file is an
       existing PO file with the old translations which will be taken over  to
       the  newly  created  file as long as they still match; comments will be
       preserved, but extract comments and file positions will	be  discarded.
       The  ref.po  file  is the last created PO file (generally by xgettext),
       any translations or comments in the file will be discarded, however dot
       comments  and  file  positions will be preserved.  Where an exact match
       cannot be found, fuzzy matching is used to produce better results.  The
       results are written to stdout unless an output file is specified.
