ecppl - Man Page

language-extractor for ecpp(7)


ecppl [-I dir] [-ln] [-o output-filename] ecpp-filename ...


ecppl is the language extractor for ecpp. Ecpp - the template language used with tntnet - supports internationalized applications. In ecpp templates a tag <i18n> changes the meaning of curly braces. A phrase, which is enclosed in curly braces, can be translated. At runtime the phrase is looked up in a language-library. This mode can be quit with the tag </i18n>. Phrases must not have newlines or tabs.

Every phrase, which is marked as translatable, is extracted with ecppl and written to standard output or to a specified output-filename line by line.


-I dir
