podebconf-display-po — display content of a PO file in a debconf interface

Synopsis

podebconf-display-po [-h] [-f FRONTEND] file.po

Description

As with any other localization work, translators should test their translations by running the program they are working on.  But this is a very hard job with complicated configuration scripts because there is no automatic way to have all messages displayed.

The podebconf-display-po program could be called the Poor Man Localization Checker for debconf.  It parses a PO file, tries to guess what the original templates file did look like, and displays messages in a debconf interface.

Of course being root is not mandatory, and there is no interaction between podebconf-display-po and system-wide debconf settings.

Options

-h, --help

Display a usage summary and exit.

-f, --frontend=FRONTEND
