NAME
       msggrep - pattern matching on message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msggrep [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Extracts	 all messages of a translation catalog that match a given pat‐
       tern or belong to some given source files.

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

   Input file location:
       INPUTFILE
	      input PO file

       -D, --directory=DIRECTORY
	      add DIRECTORY to list for input files search

       If no input file is given or if it is -, standard input is read.

   Output file location:
       -o, --output-file=FILE
	      write output to specified file

       The  results are written to standard output if no output file is speci‐
       fied or if it is -.

   Message selection:
	      [-N SOURCEFILE]... [-M DOMAINNAME]...  [-J MSGCTXT-PATTERN]  [-K
	      MSGID-PATTERN]  [-T  MSGSTR-PATTERN]  [-C	 COMMENT-PATTERN]  [-X
	      EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PATTERN]

       A message is selected if it comes from  one  of	the  specified	source
       files,  or  if  it comes from one of the specified domains, or if -J is
       given and its context (msgctxt) matches MSGCTXT-PATTERN, or  if	-K  is
       given  and its key (msgid or msgid_plural) matches MSGID-PATTERN, or if
       -T is given and its translation (msgstr) matches MSGSTR-PATTERN, or  if
       -C is given and the translator's comment matches COMMENT-PATTERN, or if
       -X is given and the extracted  comment  matches	EXTRACTED-COMMENT-PAT‐
       TERN.

       When  more  than	 one  selection	 criterion  is	specified,  the set of
       selected messages is the union of the selected messages of each	crite‐
       rion.
