       The  command  extracts messages from a C program source file and writes
       them to the standard output in a format suitable for input to (see gen‐
       cat(1)).	  The  input  file  will be preprocessed using (see cpp(1)) in
       order to select print specifiers and handle conditional primitives.  If
       multiple	 input	files  are  specified  and the option is not used, the
       files are processed sequentially	 such  that  message  catalog  comment
       lines identifying the input file are written before the output for each
       input file.

       The command scans the source files for uncommented lines	 with  one  of
       the following three formats embedded within it:

       or any combination of these formats wholly contained on a single physi‐
       cal line.  could be a string constant or a combination of  string  con‐
       stants  and  print specifiers (PRI*).  Any number of spaces or tabs can
       separate the comment from the message.  The digit n, which can  be  any
       valid  message  number  (see  gencat(1)),  is combined with the message
       string to produce a message catalog source line.	  The  message	source
       line is assigned to the set whose number is the current value of as set
       by the last directive encountered.  If has not yet been defined when  a
       message line is found, the message is output without a set number spec‐
       ification.  If more than one message is found belonging to the same set
       and  message  number,  the last message found is output; any others are
       silently discarded.  Conditional compilation and instructions in the  C
       source files are ignored.

       byte characters.

       determines the language in which messages are displayed.

       If or is not specified in the  environment  or  is  set	to  the	 empty
       string, the value of is used as a default for each unspecified or empty
       variable.  If is not specified or is set to the empty string, a default
       of  (see	 lang(5)) is used instead of If any internationalization vari‐
       able contains an invalid setting, and behave as if  all	international‐

   International Code Set Support
       Single-byte and multi-byte character code sets are supported.
