pocommentclean

pocommentclean will remove all translator comments from a directory of PO files.

Prerequisites

Usage

pocommentclean [--backup] <po>

Where:

po is a directory of existing PO files that you want to clean

Options:

-- backup Create a backup file for each PO file converted, .po.bak

Operation

Using sed pocommentclean will delete all lines starting with # but which are not standard Gettext PO format lines. So it won't delete developer comments (#.), obsolete messages (#~), flags (#,) or locations (#:).

Bugs

pocommentclean cannot clean individual PO files, it only cleans directories
