Description

INTLTOOL-EXTRACT(8)         System Manager's Manual        INTLTOOL-EXTRACT(8)



NAME
       intltool-extract - generate header files which can be read by gettext


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
       -l
       --local
           Creates a  subdirectory  under  current  working  directory  (named
           "tmp/")  and  writes  files  there.  This option can't be used with
           --update option.

       --update
           Writes header file into the same directory the source file  is  in.
           New  file  name  is  the source file name appending ".h" extension.
           This option can't be used with  -l/--local  option.  Besides,  this
           option  is  the  default  option if neither --local nor --update is
           specified.

       --type=TYPE
           Specify the type of source file. Currently supported types are:
           "gettext/glade" (.glade, .glade2)
           "gettext/gsettings" (.gschema.xml)
           "gettext/ini" (Generic INI file)
           "gettext/keys" (.keys)
           "gettext/rfc822deb" (RFC 822 format file)
           "gettext/quoted" (all strings within "")
           "gettext/schemas" (.schemas)
           "gettext/scheme" (.scm)
           "gettext/xml" (Generic XML file)
           "gettext/qtdesigner" (Qt Designer .ui files)
