NAME
       msgcomm - match two message catalogs

SYNOPSIS
       msgcomm [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       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  messages  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, comments and extract comments will be preserved, but only
       from  the  first	 PO  file  to define them.  File positions from all PO
       files will be cumulated.

       too.
