msgexec [option] command [command-option]
msgexec program applies a command to all translations of a
The command can be any program that reads a translation from standard
input. It is invoked once for each translation. Its output becomes
msgexec's return code is the maximum return code
across all invocations.
A special builtin command called `0' outputs the translation, followed by a null byte. The output of `msgexec 0' is suitable as input for `xargs -0'.
During each command invocation, the environment variable
MSGEXEC_MSGID is bound to the message's msgid, and the environment
MSGEXEC_LOCATION is bound to the location in the PO file
of the message.
Note: It is your responsibility to ensure that the command can cope
with input encoded in the translation catalog's encoding. If the
command wants input in a particular encoding, you can in a first step
convert the translation catalog to that encoding using the `msgconv'
program, before invoking `msgexec'. If the command wants input
in the locale's encoding, but you want to avoid the locale's encoding, then
you can first convert the translation catalog to UTF-8 using the
`msgconv' program and then make `msgexec' work in an UTF-8
locale, by using the
LC_ALL environment variable.
