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

Input file location:
filename.po …
input files

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

If input file is -, standard input is read.

Operation mode:
-j, –java
Java mode: generate a Java ResourceBundle class

–java2
like –java, and assume Java2 (JDK 1.2 or higher)

–csharp
C# mode: generate a .NET .dll file

–csharp-resources
C# resources mode: generate a .NET .resources file

–tcl Tcl mode: generate a tcl/msgcat .msg file

–qt Qt mode: generate a Qt .qm file

–desktop
Desktop Entry mode: generate a .desktop file

–xml XML mode: generate XML file

Output file location:
-o, –output-file=FILE
write output to specified file

–strict
enable strict Uniforum mode

If output file is -, output is written to standard output.

Output file location in Java mode:
-r, –resource=RESOURCE
resource name

-l, –locale=LOCALE
locale name, either language or language_COUNTRY

–source
produce a .java file, instead of a .class file

-d DIRECTORY
base directory of classes directory hierarchy

The class name is determined by appending the locale name to the
resource name, separated with an underscore. The -d option is manda‐
tory. The class is written under the specified directory.

Output file location in C# mode:
-r, –resource=RESOURCE
resource name

-l, –locale=LOCALE
locale name, either language or language_COUNTRY

-d DIRECTORY
base directory for locale dependent .dll files

The -l and -d options are mandatory. The .dll file is written in a
subdirectory of the specified directory whose name depends on the
locale.

Output file location in Tcl mode:
-l, –locale=LOCALE
locale name, either language or language_COUNTRY

-d DIRECTORY
base directory of .msg message catalogs

The -l and -d options are mandatory. The .msg file is written in the
specified directory.

Desktop Entry mode options:
-l, –locale=LOCALE
locale name, either language or language_COUNTRY

-o, –output-file=FILE
write output to specified file

–template=TEMPLATE
a .desktop file used as a template

-d DIRECTORY
base directory of .po files

-kWORD, –keyword=WORD

-k, –keyword

The -l, -o, and –template options are mandatory. If -D is specified,
input files are read from the directory instead of the command line

-L, –language=

NAME

-o, –output-file=FILE
write output to specified file

–template=TEMPLATE

The -l, -o, and –template options are mandatory. If -D is specified,
input files are read from the directory instead of the command line
arguments.

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

–stringtable-input
input files are in NeXTstep/GNUstep .strings syntax

Input file interpretation:
-c, –check
perform all the checks implied by –check-format,
–check-header, –check-domain

–check-format
check language dependent format strings

–check-header
verify presence and contents of the header entry

–check-domain
check for conflicts between domain directives and the –out‐
put-file option

-C, –check-compatibility
check that GNU msgfmt behaves like X/Open msgfmt

–check-accelerators[=CHAR] check presence of keyboard accelerators for menu items

-f, –use-fuzzy
use fuzzy entries in output

Output details:
-a, –alignment=NUMBER
align strings to NUMBER bytes (default: 1)

–endianness=BYTEORDER
write out 32-bit numbers in the given byte order (big or little,

–no-hash
