NAME
       msgcmp -	compare	message	catalog	and template

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 pro-
       gram.  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
