NAME
       msguniq - unify duplicate translations in message catalog

SYNOPSIS
       msguniq [OPTION] [INPUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Unifies duplicate translations in a translation catalog.  Finds
       duplicate translations of the same message ID.  Such duplicates are
       invalid input for other programs like msgfmt, msgmerge or msgcat.  By
       default, duplicates are merged together.  When using the --repeated
       option, only duplicates are output, and all other messages are
       discarded.  Comments and extracted comments will be cumulated, except
       that if --use-first is specified, they will be taken from the first
       translation.  File positions will be cumulated.  When using the
       --unique option, duplicates are discarded.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options
       too.

       If no input file is given or if it is -, standard input is read.

   Output file location:
       -o, --output-file=FILE

       The results are written to standard output if no output file is
       specified or if it is -.
