NAME

       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog

SYNOPSIS

       msguniq [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION

       Unifies  duplicate translations in a translation catalog.  Finds duplicate translations of
       the same message ID.  Such duplicates are invalid input for other  programs  like  msgfmt,
       msgmerge  or  msgcat.   By  default,  duplicates  are  merged  together.   When  using the
       --repeated option, only duplicates are output,  and  all  other  messages  are  discarded.
       Comments  and  extracted  comments  will  be  cumulated,  except  that  if  --use-first is
       specified, they will be  taken  from  the  first  translation.   File  positions  will  be
       cumulated.  When using the --unique option, duplicates are discarded.

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