A grep -like utility to search message files for text strings that match regular expression regexp . srchtxt is one of the message manipulation commands like gettxt and mkmsgs . If no regexp is used, srchtxt displays all message strings from the specified files.


.hw locale

-l locale

Search files that reside in the directory /usr/lib/locale/ locale /LC_MESSAGES , where locale is the language in which the message strings have been written. The default locale is set by environment variable LC_MESSAGES or LANG. If neither is set, srchtxt searches directory /usr/lib/locale/C/LC_MESSAGES .

-m msgfiles

Search for strings in one or more comma-separated msgfiles . Specifying a pathname for msgfiles overrides the -l option.


Don't print message numbers for strings.
