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 message in your program. Where an exact match cannot be found, fuzzy matching is used to produce better diagnostics.

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
-N, --no-fuzzy-matching
  do not use fuzzy matching
--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
