NAME
       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msguniq [OPTION]	[INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Unifies	duplicate translations in a translation	catalog.  Finds	dupli-
       cate translations of the	same message ID.  Such duplicates are  invalid
       input  for other	programs like msgfmt, msgmerge or msgcat.  By default,
       duplicates are merged together.	When using the --repeated option, only
       duplicates  are output, and all other messages are discarded.  Comments
       and extracted comments will be cumulated, except	that if	--use-first is
       specified,  they	 will be taken from the	first translation.  File posi-
       tions will be cumulated.	 When using the	 --unique  option,  duplicates
       are discarded.
