msgcmp

compare message catalog and template

msgcmp [OPTION] def.po ref.pot

Compare two Uniforum style .po files to check that both contain the same set of msgid strings. The def.po file is an existing PO file with the translations. The ref.pot file is the last created PO file, or a PO Template file (generally created by xgettext). This is useful for checking that you have translated each and every message in your program. Where an exact match cannot be found, fuzzy matching is used to produce better diagnostics.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

Input file location:

def.po
translations
ref.pot
references to the sources
-D, --directory=DIRECTORY
add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

Operation modifiers:

-m, --multi-domain
apply ref.pot to each of the domains in def.po
-N, --no-fuzzy-matching
do not use fuzzy matching
--use-fuzzy
consider fuzzy entries
--use-untranslated
consider untranslated entries

Input file syntax:

-P, --properties-input
input files are in Java .properties syntax
--stringtable-input
input files are in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax

Informative output:

-h, --help
display this help and exit
-V, --version
output version information and exit
