6.1 Invoking the `msginit' Program
==================================

     msginit [OPTION]

   The `msginit' program creates a new PO file, initializing the meta
information with values from the user's environment.

6.1.1 Input file location
-------------------------

`-i INPUTFILE'
`--input=INPUTFILE'
     Input POT file.


   If no INPUTFILE is given, the current directory is searched for the
POT file.  If it is `-', standard input is read.

6.1.2 Output file location
--------------------------

`-o FILE'
`--output-file=FILE'
     Write output to specified PO file.


   If no output file is given, it depends on the `--locale' option or
the user's locale setting.  If it is `-', the results are written to
standard output.

6.1.3 Input file syntax
-----------------------

`-P'
`--properties-input'
     Assume the input file is a Java ResourceBundle in Java
     `.properties' syntax, not in PO file syntax.

`--stringtable-input'
     Assume the input file is a NeXTstep/GNUstep localized resource
     file in `.strings' syntax, not in PO file syntax.


6.1.4 Output details
--------------------

`-l LL_CC'
`--locale=LL_CC'
     Set target locale.  LL should be a language code, and CC should be
     a country code.  The command `locale -a' can be used to output a
     list of all installed locales.  The default is the user's locale
     setting.

`--no-translator'
     Declares that the PO file will not have a human translator and is
     instead automatically generated.

`-p'
`--properties-output'
     Write out a Java ResourceBundle in Java `.properties' syntax.  Note
     that this file format doesn't support plural forms and silently
     drops obsolete messages.

`--stringtable-output'
     Write out a NeXTstep/GNUstep localized resource file in `.strings'
     syntax.  Note that this file format doesn't support plural forms.

`-w NUMBER'
`--width=NUMBER'
     Set the output page width.  Long strings in the output files will
     be split across multiple lines in order to ensure that each line's
     width (= number of screen columns) is less or equal to the given
     NUMBER.

`--no-wrap'
     Do not break long message lines.  Message lines whose width
     exceeds the output page width will not be split into several
     lines.  Only file reference lines which are wider than the output
     page width will be split.


6.1.5 Informative output
------------------------

`-h'
`--help'
     Display this help and exit.

`-V'
`--version'
     Output version information and exit.
