make_strings(1)		     GNUstep System Manual	       make_strings(1)

NAME
       make_strings  -	tool to	build lists of localizable strings from	Objec-
       tive-C files

SYNOPSIS
       make_strings [--help] [--verbose]  [--aggresive-import]	[--aggressive-
       match] [--aggressive-remove] [-L	languages] files.[hmc...]

DESCRIPTION
       make_strings  parses  Objective-C files and builds lists	of localizable
       strings.	 It then creates new .strings files or merges the strings with
       existing	.strings files.	 It's fairly intelligent when matching old and
       new strings, and	produces .strings files	that are (supposed to be) easy
       for a translator	to work	with.

       make_strings accepts the	following options:

OPTIONS
       --help Prints a short list of available options.

       --verbose
	      Prints additional	information while processing.

       -L languages
	      Specify which languages to process.  Multuple -L options are ac-
	      cepted, or multiple languages defined in one -L flag.

       --aggressive-import
	      Activates	--aggresive-match and  automatically  removes  "dummy"
	      entries  that  are  added	by importing .strings files which were
	      not created by make_strings program.  This  option  is  suitable
	      when  make_strings is run	for the	first time and there is	an ex-
	      isting .strings file which contains a fairly  accurate  transla-
	      tion.

       --aggressive-match
	      This  option  will  make	make_strings assume that matching keys
	      should have matching translations.  This can save	lots of	 work,
	      but it increases the risk	of erroneous translation.

       --aggressive-remove
	      Removes obsolete strings/keys.

EXAMPLES
       make_strings -L "English	Swedish	Russian" *.[hm]
