       gencat - Generate message catalog


       gencat [OPTION...] -o OUTPUT-FILE [INPUT-FILE]...


       The gencat program is specified in the X/Open standard and the GNU implementation follows
       this specification and so processes all correctly formed input files. Additionally some
       extension are implemented which help to work in a more reasonable way with the catgets(3)

       -H, --header NAME
              Create C header file NAME containing symbol definitions

       --new  Do not use existing catalog, force new output file

       -o, --output NAME
              Write output to file NAME


       gencat was written by Ulrich Drepper as part of the GNU C Library.
