The GNU gettext package provides a set of tools and documentation for producing multi-lingual messages in programs. Tools include a set of conventions about how programs should be written to support message catalogs, a directory and file naming organization for the message catalogs and stand-alone programs for handling the translatable and the already translated strings. Gettext provides an easy to use library and tools for creating, using, and modifying natural language catalogs and is a powerful and simple method for internationalizing programs.

This package contains statically linked binaries so that the "standard" libintl.a library that comes with AIX stays untouched but the binaries contain the functionality of recent gettext versions.

Please note:

  • You will only need this package if you need the functionality of the binaries of later gettext versions.
  • With this package you can stay with the AIX default gettext version and still build programs that need later gettext capabilities.
  • This package should remove the "gettext" issues that occurred after AIX updates when gettext >= 0.17 was installed.
