pygettext -- Python equivalent of xgettext(1)

Many systems (Solaris, Linux, Gnu) provide extensive tools that ease the
internationalization of C programs.  Most of these tools are independent of
the programming language and can be used from within Python programs.  Martin
von Loewis' work[1] helps considerably in this regard.

There's one problem though; xgettext is the program that scans source code
looking for message strings, but it groks only C (or C++).  Python introduces
a few wrinkles, such as dual quoting characters, triple quoted strings, and
raw strings.  xgettext understands none of this.

Enter pygettext, which uses Python's standard tokenize module to scan Python
source code, generating .pot files identical to what GNU xgettext[2] generates
for C and C++ code.  From there, the standard GNU tools can be used.

A word about marking Python strings as candidates for translation.  GNU
xgettext recognizes the following keywords: gettext, dgettext, dcgettext, and
gettext_noop.  But those can be a lot of text to include all over your code.
C and C++ have a trick: they use the C preprocessor.  Most internationalized C
source includes a #define for gettext() to _() so that what has to be written
in the source is much less.  Thus these are both translatable strings:

    gettext("Translatable String")
    _("Translatable String")

Python of course has no preprocessor so this doesn't work so well.  Thus,
pygettext searches only for _() by default, but see the -k/--keyword flag
below for how to augment this.

NOTE: pygettext attempts to be option and feature compatible with GNU xgettext
where ever possible.  However some options are still missing or are not fully
implemented.  Also, xgettext's use of command line switches with option
arguments is broken, and in these cases, pygettext just defines additional

Usage: pygettext [options] inputfile ...


        Extract all strings

    -d name
        Rename the default output file from messages.pot to name.pot 

        replace non-ASCII characters with octal escape sequences.

        print this help message and exit

    -k word
        Keywords to look for in addition to the default set, which are:

        You can have multiple -k flags on the command line.

        Disable the default set of keywords (see above).  Any keywords
        explicitly added with the -k/--keyword option are still recognized.

        Do not write filename/lineno location comments.

        Write filename/lineno location comments indicating where each
        extracted string is found in the source.  These lines appear before
        each msgid.  The style of comments is controlled by the -S/--style
        option.  This is the default.

    -S stylename
    --style stylename
        Specify which style to use for location comments.  Two styles are

        Solaris  # File: filename, line: line-number
        GNU      #: filename:line

        The style name is case insensitive.  GNU style is the default.

    -o filename
        Rename the default output file from messages.pot to filename.  If
        filename is `-' then the output is sent to standard out.

    -p dir
        Output files will be placed in directory dir.

        Print the names of the files being processed.

        Print the version of pygettext and exit.

    -w columns
        Set width of output to columns.

    -x filename
        Specify a file that contains a list of strings that are not be
        extracted from the input files.  Each string to be excluded must
        appear on a line by itself in the file.

If `inputfile' is -, standard input is read.
