msgexec — process translations of message catalog

Synopsis

msgexec [OPTION] COMMAND [COMMAND-OPTION]

Description

Applies a command to all translations of a translation catalog. The COMMAND can be any program that reads a translation from standard input.  It is invoked once for each translation.  Its output becomes msgexec's output.  msgexec's return code is the maximum return code across all invocations.
