MSGCMP(1)                             GNU                            MSGCMP(1)




NAME

       msgcmp - compare message catalog and template


SYNOPSIS

       msgcmp [OPTION] def.po ref.pot


DESCRIPTION

       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 pro-
       gram.  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

   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
