       change-po-charset  - change the charset value in content-type header of
       a gettext po file


       change-po-charset <charset> FILENAME1 [ FILENAME2 ...]


       change-po-charset is a simple Perl script, which  reads  the  specified
       file  names,  and  prints  them  on  standard  output,  making only the
       following  modification.  In  the  first  msgstr  string  sequence   it
       encounters,  it  changes  the  "charset"  attribute of the Content-Type
       header to the charset specified as the first parameter.

       Please note that it does not actually change any character encoding  of
       the  contents  of  the  data.  It  is  used by potooledit(1) to fix the
       content-type header after it recodes the file with iconv(1).


       potooledit(1), iconv(1), msgmerge(1), msgfmt(1).
