       kateenc - create	Kate streams from text input

       kateenc [-hVM] [-o outfile] [-l language] [-c category] [-s serial] [-C
       tag=value] [-R threshold] [-K threshold]	-t filetype [ infile ]

       kateenc creates Kate streams from input files  (SubRip  SRT  subtitles,
       LRC  lyrics, and	libkate's custom description language).	 When saved to
       an Ogg stream (the default behavior), a Kate stream may then be	merged
       with other Ogg streams (eg, a Theora video) using the oggz tools.

       -h     Show command line	help.

       -V     Show version information.

       -M     Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is
	      used, strings such as "<i>" will be interpreted to mean italics,
	      rather  than appear as such. Note	that various players interpret
	      a	slightly different set of HTML tags, and some do not.

       -o outfile
	      Write the	output Kate stream to the given	file name  (writes  to
	      stdout if	not specified).

       -l language
	      Sets the language	for the	stream (default	is the language	speci-
	      fied in the input, or none).

       -c category
	      Sets the category	for the	stream (default	is the category	speci-
	      fied in the input, or none).

       -s serial
	      Sets  the	serial number for the output Kate stream (does not ap-
	      ply to raw streams).

       -C tag=value
	      Adds a comment to	encode into the	output Kate stream.  The  com-
	      ment  must  be of	the form tag=value, and	comply with the	Vorbis
	      comment rules (eg, tag is	composed of  a	particular  subset  of
	      ASCII characters,	and value is valid UTF-8). Note	that you might
	      have to escape or	quote the comment for it to be seen as a  sin-
	      gle command line parameter.

       -t filetype
	      Specifies	the type of the	input (srt, lrc, kate)

       -R threshold
	      Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds).  Data
	      packets will be repeated at intervals of roughly threshold  sec-
	      onds, while active.

       -K threshold
	      Use  keepalive  packets,	with the given threshold (in seconds).
	      Keepalive	packets	will be	emitted	when no	other packet has  been
	      emitted for roughly threshold seconds.

       Create a	Kate stream for	Welsh subtitles	from a SubRip file:

	   kateenc -t srt -l cy	-c SUB -o output.ogg
