NAME
       ngettext	- translate message and	choose plural form

SYNOPSIS
       ngettext	[OPTION] [TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID MSGID-PLURAL COUNT

DESCRIPTION
       The  ngettext  program  translates  a natural language message into the
       user's language,	by looking up the translation in  a  message  catalog,
       and  chooses  the  appropriate plural form, which depends on the	number
       COUNT and the language of the message catalog where the translation was
       found.

       Display native language translation of a	textual	message	whose grammat-
       ical form depends on a number.

       -d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN
	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       -h, --help
	      display this help	and exit

       -V, --version
	      display version information and exit

       [TEXTDOMAIN]
	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       MSGID MSGID-PLURAL
	      translate	MSGID (singular) / MSGID-PLURAL	(plural)

       COUNT  choose singular/plural form based	on this	value

       If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from
       the  environment	 variable  TEXTDOMAIN.	 If the	message	catalog	is not
       found in	the regular directory, another location	can be specified  with
       the  environment	 variable  TEXTDOMAINDIR.   Standard search directory:
       /usr/local/share/locale
