NAME
       msgfilter - edit translations of message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msgfilter [OPTION] FILTER [FILTER-OPTION]

DESCRIPTION
       Applies a filter to all translations of a translation catalog.

       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.

   Output file location:
       -o, --output-file=FILE
              write output to specified file

       The results are written to standard output if no output file is specified or if it is -.

       The FILTER can be any program that reads a translation from standard input and writes a modified translation to
       standard output.

   Useful FILTER-OPTIONs when the FILTER is 'sed':
       -e, --expression=SCRIPT
              add SCRIPT to the commands to be executed

       -f, --file=SCRIPTFILE
              add the contents of SCRIPTFILE to the commands to be executed

       -n, --quiet, --silent
              suppress automatic printing of pattern space

   Input file syntax:
       -P, --properties-input
              input file is in Java .properties syntax

       --stringtable-input
              input file is in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax
