9.9 Invoking the `msgen' Program
================================

     msgen [OPTION] INPUTFILE

   The `msgen' program creates an English translation catalog.  The
input file is the last created English PO file, or a PO Template file
(generally created by xgettext).  Untranslated entries are assigned a
translation that is identical to the msgid.

   Note: `msginit --no-translator --locale=en' performs a very similar
task.  The main difference is that `msginit' cares specially about the
header entry, whereas `msgen' doesn't.

9.9.1 Input file location
-------------------------

`INPUTFILE'
     Input PO or POT file.

`-D DIRECTORY'
`--directory=DIRECTORY'
     Add DIRECTORY to the list of directories.  Source files are
     searched relative to this list of directories.  The resulting `.po'
     file will be written relative to the current directory, though.


   If INPUTFILE is `-', standard input is read.

9.9.2 Output file location
--------------------------

`-o FILE'
`--output-file=FILE'
     Write output to specified file.


   The results are written to standard output if no output file is
specified or if it is `-'.

9.9.3 Input file syntax
-----------------------

`-P'
`--properties-input'
     Assume the input file is a Java ResourceBundle in Java
     `.properties' syntax, not in PO file syntax.

`--stringtable-input'
     Assume the input file is a NeXTstep/GNUstep localized resource
     file in `.strings' syntax, not in PO file syntax.


9.9.4 Output details
--------------------

`--force-po'
     Always write an output file even if it contains no message.

`-i'
`--indent'
     Write the .po file using indented style.

`--no-location'
     Do not write `#: FILENAME:LINE' lines.

`--add-location'
     Generate `#: FILENAME:LINE' lines (default).

`--strict'
     Write out a strict Uniforum conforming PO file.  Note that this
     Uniforum format should be avoided because it doesn't support the
     GNU extensions.

`-p'
`--properties-output'
     Write out a Java ResourceBundle in Java `.properties' syntax.  Note
     that this file format doesn't support plural forms and silently
     drops obsolete messages.

`--stringtable-output'
     Write out a NeXTstep/GNUstep localized resource file in `.strings'
     syntax.  Note that this file format doesn't support plural forms.

`-w NUMBER'
`--width=NUMBER'
     Set the output page width.  Long strings in the output files will
     be split across multiple lines in order to ensure that each line's
     width (= number of screen columns) is less or equal to the given
     NUMBER.

`--no-wrap'
     Do not break long message lines.  Message lines whose width
     exceeds the output page width will not be split into several
     lines.  Only file reference lines which are wider than the output
     page width will be split.

`-s'
`--sort-output'
     Generate sorted output.  Note that using this option makes it much
     harder for the translator to understand each message's context.

`-F'
`--sort-by-file'
     Sort output by file location.


9.9.5 Informative output
------------------------

`-h'
`--help'
     Display this help and exit.

`-V'
`--version'
     Output version information and exit.
