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