NAME ^

maketext - translate and make messages

SYNOPSIS ^

  maketext [OPTION] [--domain=TEXTDOMAIN] MSGKEY [PARAM...]
  maketext [OPTION] -s MSGID [PARAM...]

DESCRIPTION ^

The maketext script translates a natural language message into the user's language, by looking up the translation in a message MO file, and process the plural transformation with Maketext.

The maketext script is a command-line interface to Locale::Maketext::Gettext(3) (and Locale::Maketext(3)). It can be used in shell scripts, etc, to translate, maketext and return the result. By this way, it enables Maketext to be integrated into other programming languages/systems, like bash/csh, python, PHP, C, etc. It works like the command-line program gettext.

For example:

  % maketext -s "[*,_1,virus was,viruses were] found in [*,_2,file,files]." 0 1
  0 viruses were found in 1 file.
  % maketext -s "[*,_1,virus was,viruses were] found in [*,_2,file,files]." 1 3
  1 virus was found in 3 files.
  %

OPTIONS ^

-d,--domain=TEXTDOMAIN

Retrieve translated messages from TEXTDOMAIN.

-s

Adds a new line to the end of the output so that it behaves like the `echo' or the `gettext' command.

-h,--help

Display the help messages.

-V,--version

Display version information and exit.

MSGKEY

The original text used to look up translated text.

PARAM...

Parameters to Maketext for the plural and other text functions.

ENVIRONMENT ^

TEXTDOMAIN

TEXTDOMAIN is used to determine the text domain when the -d parameter is not given.

TEXTDOMAINDIR

TEXTDOMAINDIR is used to search the message catelog/MO file if it does not reside in the system locale directories.

NOTES ^

Maketext language function override, like quant or numerate, is not available here. Suggestions are welcome.

The current system locale directory search order is: /usr/share/locale, /usr/lib/locale, /usr/local/share/locale, /usr/local/lib/locale. Suggestions are welcome.
