NAME

       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog


SYNOPSIS

       msguniq [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]


DESCRIPTION

       Unifies  duplicate translations in a translation catalog.  Finds dupli-
       cate 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 posi-
       tions will be cumulated.  When using the  --unique  option,  duplicates
       are discarded.

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