8.1.3 Output file location

`-o file'
`--output-file=file'
Write output to specified file.

`--strict'
Direct the program to work strictly following the Uniforum/Sun implementation. Currently this only affects the naming of the output file. If this option is not given the name of the output file is the same as the domain name. If the strict Uniforum mode is enabled the suffix `.mo' is added to the file name if it is not already present.

We find this behaviour of Sun's implementation rather silly and so by default this mode is not selected.

If the output file is `-', output is written to standard output.
