NAME
       msgcat - combines several message catalogs

SYNOPSIS
       msgcat [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       Concatenates  and  merges  the specified PO files.  Find messages which
       are common to two or more of the specified  PO  files.	By  using  the
       --more-than  option,  greater  commonality may be requested before mes‐
       sages are printed.  Conversely, the --less-than option may be  used  to
       specify	 less	commonality   before   messages	  are	printed	 (i.e.
       --less-than=2 will only print the unique messages).  Translations, com‐
       ments   and   extract  comments	will  be  cumulated,  except  that  if
       --use-first is specified, they will be taken from the first PO file  to
       define them.  File positions from all PO files will be cumulated.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options
       too.
