MSGGREP(1)                            GNU                           MSGGREP(1)



NAME
       msggrep - pattern matching on message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msggrep [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Extracts all messages of a translation catalog that match a given pattern or belong to some given source files.

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

   Input file location:
       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 -.

   Message selection:
              [-N SOURCEFILE]... [-M DOMAINNAME]...  [-J MSGCTXT-PATTERN] [-K MSGID-PATTERN] [-T  MSGSTR-PATTERN]  [-C
              COMMENT-PATTERN] [-X EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN]

       A message is selected if it comes from one of the specified source files, or if it comes from one of the speci-
       fied domains, or if -J is given and its context (msgctxt) matches MSGCTXT-PATTERN, or if -K is  given  and  its
       key  (msgid  or  msgid_plural)  matches  MSGID-PATTERN,  or if -T is given and its translation (msgstr) matches
       MSGSTR-PATTERN, or if -C is given and the translator's comment matches COMMENT-PATTERN, or if -X is  given  and
       the extracted comment matches EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN.

       When  more than one selection criterion is specified, the set of selected messages is the union of the selected
       messages of each criterion.

       MSGCTXT-PATTERN or MSGID-PATTERN or MSGSTR-PATTERN or COMMENT-PATTERN or EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN syntax:

              [-E | -F] [-e PATTERN | -f FILE]...

       PATTERNs are basic regular expressions by default, or extended regular expressions if -E  is  given,  or  fixed
       strings if -F is given.

       -N, --location=SOURCEFILE
              select messages extracted from SOURCEFILE

       -M, --domain=DOMAINNAME
              select messages belonging to domain DOMAINNAME

       -J, --msgctxt
              start of patterns for the msgctxt

       -K, --msgid
              start of patterns for the msgid

       -T, --msgstr
              start of patterns for the msgstr

       -C, --comment
              start of patterns for the translator's comment

       -X, --extracted-comment
              start of patterns for the extracted comment

       -E, --extended-regexp
              PATTERN is an extended regular expression

       -F, --fixed-strings
              PATTERN is a set of newline-separated strings

              use PATTERN as a regular expression

       -f, --file=FILE
              obtain PATTERN from FILE

       -i, --ignore-case
              ignore case distinctions

       -v, --invert-match
              output only the messages that do not match any selection criterion

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

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