GNU gettext support for Perl programs
Message ID:

The just-released GNU gettext 0.13 has improved support for Perl programs:

  * xgettext now also supports Perl. Implemented by Guido Flohr.

  * The safe format strings introduced in libintl-perl are supported, in
    the sense that the tools verify that the translator must translate a
    format string with a compatible format string.

  * Two examples demonstrating the use of GNU gettext with Perl are available:
    One is shipped as part of GNU gettext and installed at
    The other one is shipped as part of libintl-perl and viewable online at
