       gencat - generate a formatted message catalog

       gencat catalog_file [source_file ...]

       The command takes one or more message source files and either creates a
       new catalog or merges new message text into an existing	catalog.   You
       should use the extension for message text files (for example, ) and the
       extension for catalogs (for example, ) to process files with  the  com‐

       In  some	 cases,	 a  formatted message catalog exists that has the same
       name the one that is creating.  When this occurs, merges	 the  messages
       from  the  source message catalogs into this existing formatted message
       catalog.	 The command merges the source message catalogs into the  for‐
       matted  message	catalog	 in  the  same	manner as it merges a group of
       source message catalogs.	 If a source message catalog contains the same
       set  number or message number as a set or message in the formatted mes‐
       sage catalog, the source message catalog set or message has precedence.
       For  example, if both the source and formatted message catalogs contain
       a message number 25, the message text for message 25 in the source mes‐
       sage  catalog  replaces the message text in the formatted message cata‐
       log.  Thus, when source message catalogs are merged with formatted mes‐
       sage catalogs, the formatted catalogs are updated.

       If you do not specify a source file, the command accepts message source
       data from standard input.

       Numeric message source files are portable between X/Open systems.

       For information on the source format for messages files, see the	 Guide
       to Developing International Software.

       The  command  does  not	accept mnemonic identifiers.  You must run the
       command if you want to use mnemonic identifiers.
