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 mes-
       sage in your program.  Where an exact match cannot be found, fuzzy matching is used to produce better  diagnos-
       tics.

       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

       --use-fuzzy
              consider fuzzy entries

       --use-untranslated
              consider untranslated entries

   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
