Obtain the message that resides in file msgfile and whose message ID is msgnum . msgnum is a number from 1 to n , where n is the number of messages in msgfile . gettxt searches for msgfile in directory /usr/lib/locale/ locale /LC_MESSAGES, where locale is the language in which the message strings have been written. The value of locale is set by environment variable LC_MESSAGES, or failing that, the LANG environment variable. If neither is set, locale defaults to a directory named C . If gettxt fails, it displays default_message or (if none is specified) the string, "Message not found!!"
