NAME

       Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext - PO and MO file parser for Maketext

VERSION

       version 1.00

SYNOPSIS

       Called via Locale::Maketext::Lexicon:

           package Hello::I18N;
           use base 'Locale::Maketext';
           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
           };

       Directly calling "parse()":

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext;
           my %Lexicon = %{ Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext->parse(<DATA>) };
           __DATA__
           #: Hello.pm:10
           msgid "Hello, World!"
           msgstr "Hallo, Welt!"

           #: Hello.pm:11
           msgid "You have %quant(%1,piece) of mail."
           msgstr "Sie haben %quant(%1,Poststueck,Poststuecken)."

DESCRIPTION

       This module implements a perl-based "Gettext" parser for Locale::Maketext. It transforms
       all %1, %2, <%*>... sequences to "[_1]", "[_2]", "[_*]", and so on.  It accepts either
       plain PO file, or a MO file which will be handled with a pure-perl parser adapted from
       Imacat's "Locale::Maketext::Gettext".

       Since version 0.03, this module also looks for "%function(args...)"  in the lexicon
       strings, and transform it to "[function,args...]".  Any %1, %2... sequences inside the
       args will have their percent signs ("%") replaced by underscores ("_").

       The name of function above should begin with a letter or underscore, followed by any
       number of alphanumeric characters and/or underscores.  As an exception, the function name
       may also consist of a single asterisk ("*") or pound sign ("#"), which are
       "Locale::Maketext"'s shorthands for "quant" and "numf", respectively.

       As an additional feature, this module also parses MIME-header style metadata specified in
       the null msgstr (""), and add them to the %Lexicon with a "__" prefix.  For example, the
       example above will set "__Content-Type" to "text/plain; charset=iso8859-1", without the
       newline or the colon.

       Any normal entry that duplicates a metadata entry takes precedence.  Hence, a "msgid
       "__Content-Type"" line occurs anywhere should override the above value.

OPTIONS

   use_fuzzy
       When parsing PO files, fuzzy entries (entries marked with "#, fuzzy") are silently
       ignored.  If you wish to use fuzzy entries, specify a true value to the "_use_fuzzy"
       option:

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
               _use_fuzzy => 1,
           };

   allow_empty
       When parsing PO files, empty entries (entries with "msgstr """) are silently ignored.  If
       you wish to allow empty entries, specify a true value to the "_allow_empty" option:

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
               _allow_empty => 1,
           };
