       msgcmp - compare message catalog and template


       msgcmp [OPTION] def.po ref.pot


       Compare  two  Uniforum  style  .po  files to check that both contain the same set of msgid
       strings.  The def.po file is an existing PO file with the translations.  The ref.pot  file
       is  the last created PO file, or a PO Template file (generally created by xgettext).  This
       is useful for checking that you have translated each and every message  in  your  program.
       Where  an  exact  match  cannot  be  found,  fuzzy  matching  is  used  to  produce better

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

   Input file location:
       def.po translations

              references to the sources

       -D, --directory=DIRECTORY
              add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

   Operation modifiers:
       -m, --multi-domain
              apply ref.pot to each of the domains in def.po

       -N, --no-fuzzy-matching
              do not use fuzzy matching

              consider fuzzy entries

              consider untranslated entries

   Input file syntax:
       -P, --properties-input
              input files are in Java .properties syntax

              input files are in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax

   Informative output:
       -h, --help
              display this help and exit

       -V, --version
              output version information and exit
