       msgmerge [OPTION] def.po ref.pot


       Merges  two Uniforum style .po files together.  The def.po
       file is an existing PO file with translations  which  will
       be  taken  over  to the newly created file as long as they
       still match; comments will  be  preserved,  but  extracted
       comments  and  file  positions  will  be  discarded.   The
       ref.pot file is the last created PO file  with  up-to-date
       source  references  but old translations, or a PO Template
       file (generally created by xgettext); any translations  or
       comments  in  the file will be discarded, however dot com­
       ments and file positions  will  be  preserved.   Where  an
       exact  match  cannot  be  found, fuzzy matching is used to
       produce better results.

       short options too.
