NAME
       msgexec - process translations of message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msgexec [OPTION]	COMMAND	[COMMAND-OPTION]

DESCRIPTION
       Applies	a  command  to all translations	of a translation catalog.  The
       COMMAND can be any program that reads a translation from	 standard  in-
       put.   It is invoked once for each translation.	Its output becomes ms-
       gexec's output.	msgexec's return  code	is  the	 maximum  return  code
       across all invocations.

       A  special builtin command called '0' outputs the translation, followed
       by a null byte.	The output of "msgexec 0" is  suitable	as  input  for
       "xargs -0".

   Command input:
       --newline
	      add newline at the end of	input

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

   Input file location:
       -i, --input=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.

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

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

   Informative output:
       -h, --help
	      display this help	and exit

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit
