msgexec

process translations of message catalog

msgexec [OPTION] COMMAND [COMMAND-OPTION]

Applies a command to all translations of a translation catalog. The COMMAND can be any program that reads a translation from standard input. It is invoked once for each translation. Its output becomes msgexec's output. msgexec's return code is the maximum return code across all invocations.

A special builtin command called '0' outputs the translation, followed by a null byte. The output of "msgexec 0" is suitable as input for "xargs -0".

Command input:

--newline
add newline at the end of input

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

Input file location:

-i, --input=INPUTFILE
input PO file
-D, --directory=DIRECTORY
add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

If no input file is given or if it is -, standard input is read.

Input file syntax:

-P, --properties-input
input file is in Java .properties syntax
--stringtable-input
input file is in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax

Informative output:

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