GETTEXT(1)              NetBSD General Commands Manual              GETTEXT(1)


NAME
gettext -- message translation front-end
SYNOPSIS
gettext [-h] gettext [-en] [textdomain] msgid gettext -s [-n] [msgid ...]
DESCRIPTION
gettext attempts to translate a given msgid into the locale-specific string as determined by the environment. If a translation file is not found, or a translation for the given msgid is not found, the original string will be echoed. If the textdomain is not provided as an argument, the TEXTDOMAIN environ- ment variable will be consulted instead. By default gettext will look for message catalogs in /usr/share/locale. If the environment variable TEXTDOMAINDIR is defined, then that will override the default location. The following flags are available: -e Interpret backslash escape sequences prior to translation. -h Print the usage information -n If -s is used, do not add the trailing newline. If -s is not provided, this flag will do nothing. -s Act similarly to echo(1). All msgid arguments will be trans- lated, and a newline will be appended to the output string.
ENVIRONMENT
TEXTDOMAIN The domain to use when looking up msgids. TEXTDOMAINDIR The location of message catalogs to use, overriding /usr/share/locale.
EXIT STATUS
The gettext utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
EXAMPLES
$ LANG=es gettext grep 'writing output' escribiendo el resultado
