DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the ocaml-gettext command.

       --action extract
           Files provided are considered to be OCaml source files and ocaml-gettext tries to
           extract translatable strings of it. The output of the command is a POT file. As a
           special case, if a file named POTFILES is in the list of the file provided, every line
           of it is considered as a file to be searched.

       --action compile
           Files provided are considered to be PO file. These files are compiled in binary MO
           files,

       --action install
           Files provided are considered to be MO files. They are installed in their respective
           directories considering language, textdomain and category,

       --action uninstall
           This is the symmetric command to install, but it uninstalls files provided for the
           considered language, textdomain and category,

       --action merge
           Merges a POT file with the provided PO file.

       --extract-command cmd
           Command to extract translatable strings from an OCaml source file. This command should
           output the same marshalled structure as ocaml-xgettext. The best to do is to use the
           same build version of ocaml-gettext.

       --extract-default-option options
           Default options used when extracting translatable strings. These options are camlp4
           options and will be passed to ocaml-xgettext when processing files that don't already
           have specific camlp4 options.

       --extract-filename-option filename options
           Specific filename camlp4 options. It is used when extracting strings from the
           specified filename. It overrides default camlp4 options.

       --extract-pot filename
           POT file to write when extracting translatable strings.

       --compile-output filename
           MO file to write when compiling a PO file. If not provided, the output will be the
           name of the PO file with ".mo" extension.

       --install-language language
           Language to use when installing a MO file.

       --install-category category
           Category to use when installing a MO file.

       --install-textdomain textdomain
           Textdomain to use when installing a MO file.

       --install-destdir dirname
           Base directory to use when installing a MO file.

       --uninstall-language language
           Language to use when uninstalling a MO file.

       --uninstall-category category
           Category to use when uninstalling a MO file.

       --uninstall-textdomain textdomain
           Textdomain to use when uninstalling a MO file.

       --uninstall-orgdir dirname
           Base directory used when uninstalling a MO file.

       --merge-pot filename
           POT file to use as a master for merging PO file.

       --merge-backup-extension extension
           Backup extension to use when moving PO file which have been merged.

       --version
           Return version information on ocaml-gettext.

       --short-version
           Returns only the version of ocaml-gettext. The return is made to be easily parseable
           by configure script. The output of this command will always be the shortest version
           string, made of numeric characters (0-9) and ".". The version strings should be
           compared considering that a version A is greater than a version B if there is a number
           between two "." of A that is greater than B the corresponding number, beginning at the
           right of the string. For example: 0.14 is greater than 0.13.1.

       -help, --help
           Displays the help about the ocaml-gettext command.

OCAML-GETTEXT OPTIONS

       This section describes briefly the common options provided by programs using ocaml-gettext
       library.

       --gettext-failsafe ignore
           Defines the behaviour of ocaml-gettext regarding any error that could be encountered
           during the processing of string translation.  ignore is the default behaviour. The
           string returned is the original string untranslated. This behaviour is consistent and
           allows to have a usable output, even if it is not perfect.

       --gettext-failsafe inform-stderr
           Same behaviour as ignore, except that a message is printed on stderr,

       --gettext-failsafe raise-exception
           Stops the program by raising an exception when an error is encountered.

       --gettext-disable
           Disables any translation made by ocaml-gettext. All translations return the original
           string untranslated.

       --gettext-domain-dir textdomain dir
           Defines a dir to search for a specific domain. This could be useful if MO files are
           stored in a non standard directory.

       --gettext-dir dir
           Adds a directory to search for MO files.

       --gettext-language language
           Sets the language to use in ocaml-gettext library. The language should be POSIX
           compliant. The language should follow the following convention:
           lang[_territory][.charset][@modifier]. The lang and territory should be two letters
           ISO code. Charset should be a valid ISO character set (at least recognised by the
           underlying charset recoding routine). For example, valid languages are:
           fr_FR.ISO-8859-1@euro, de_DE.UTF-8.

       --gettext-codeset codeset
           Sets the codeset for output.

       Users should be aware that these command line options, apply only for strings after the
       initialisation of the library. This means that if the options initially guessed by
       ocaml-gettext don't match the command line provided, there should be some untranslated
       string, because these strings are translated before parsing options. This is particularly
       true for the usage message itself (--help): even if the strings are translated, they are
       translated before setting the correct option.

       Some options (--gettext-codeset for example) are overrided internally for particular use.
       It should be required to always translate strings to UTF-8 in graphical user interface
       (because GTK2 requires it).

NOTES

       Options --uninstall-language, --uninstall-textdomain, --install-language and
       --install-textdomain could be guessed from the filename provided. You must be aware that
       these options can conflict with the fact that you provide several files to install. For
       example, if you provide a textdomain, you should either install several MO files which
       filenames only reflect the language or only one MO file if you also provide a language.
       For example, you can execute ocaml-gettext --install-textdomain mytextdomain fr.po de.po
       without problem, but you cannot execute ocaml-gettext --install-textdomain mytextdomain
       --install-language fr fr.po de.po . This restriction is due to the fact that you should
       not over specified file installation.

       Rules for guessing the language/textdomain are: language[.textdomain].mo. For a full
       automated install without giving any hints, through command line options, you should name
       your file fr.mytextdomain.mo or de.mytextdomain.mo.
