Synopsis

intltool-extract [options]... SOURCE_FILE

Description

intltool-extract extracts strings in the specified XML/INI type SOURCE_FILE and writes them into a C header file. Then xgettext(1) can merge these strings inside header file into po template.

intltool-extract is usually not executed manually, but called from intltool-update(8) instead.

Options
