NAME
       msgcat - combines several message catalogs

SYNOPSIS
       msgcat [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       Concatenates and merges the specified PO files.  Find messages which are common to two or more of the specified
       PO files.  By using the --more-than option, greater commonality may be requested before messages  are  printed.
       Conversely,  the  --less-than  option may be used to specify less commonality before messages are printed (i.e.
       --less-than=2 will only print the unique messages).  Translations, comments and extract comments will be  cumu-
       lated, except that if --use-first is specified, they will be taken from the first PO file to define them.  File
       positions from all PO files will be cumulated.

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