README

1This is the GNU gettext package.  It is interesting for authors or
2maintainers of other packages or programs which they want to see
3internationalized.  As one step the handling of messages in different
4languages should be implemented.  For this task GNU gettext provides
5the needed tools and library functions.
6
7It is also interesting for translators, because GNU gettext provides
8the 'msgmerge' program, which prepares a message catalog before a
9translation update.
10
11Users of GNU packages should also install GNU gettext because some
12other GNU packages will use the gettext program included in this
13package to internationalize the messages given by shell scripts.
14

16The homepage of this package is at
17
18           https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/

20The primary FTP site for its distribution is

30The configure script provides a non-standard option.  It is also
31available in other packages that use the functionality of GNU gettext.
32Use
33
34        --disable-nls
35
36if you absolutely don't want to have messages handling code.  You will
37always get the original messages (mostly English).  You could consider
38using NLS support even when you do not need other tongues.  If you do
39not install any messages catalogs or do not specify to use another but
40the C locale you will not get translations.
41
42The set of languages for which catalogs should be installed can also be
43specified while configuring.  Of course they must be available but the
44intersection of these two sets are computed automatically.  You could
45once and for all define in your profile/cshrc the variable LINGUAS:
46
47(Bourne Shell)          LINGUAS="de fr nl"; export LINGUAS
48
49(C Shell)               setenv LINGUAS "de fr nl"
50
51or specify it directly while configuring
52
53        env LINGUAS="de fr nl" ./configure
54
55Consult the manual for more information on language names.
