NAME
       ngettext - translate message and choose plural form

SYNOPSIS
       ngettext [OPTION] [TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID MSGID-PLURAL COUNT

DESCRIPTION
       The  ngettext  program  translates  a natural language message into the
       user's language, by looking up the translation in  a  message  catalog,
       and  chooses  the  appropriate plural form, which depends on the number
       COUNT and the language of the message catalog where the translation was
       found.

       Display native language translation of a textual message whose grammat‐
       ical form depends on a number.

       -d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN
	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       -h, --help
	      display this help and exit

       -V, --version
	      display version information and exit

       [TEXTDOMAIN]
	      retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       MSGID MSGID-PLURAL
	      translate MSGID (singular) / MSGID-PLURAL (plural)

       COUNT  choose singular/plural form based on this value

       If the TEXTDOMAIN parameter is not given, the domain is determined from
       the  environment	 variable  TEXTDOMAIN.	 If the message catalog is not
       found in the regular directory, another location can be specified  with
       the  environment	 variable  TEXTDOMAINDIR.   Standard search directory:
       /usr/local/share/locale
