       kateenc - create Kate streams from text input


       kateenc  [-hVrM]  [-o  outfile] [-l language] [-c category] [-s serial]
       [-C tag=value] [-R threshold] [-K threshold] -t filetype [ infile ]


       kateenc creates Kate streams from input files  (SubRip  SRT  subtitles,
       LRC  lyrics, and libkate’s custom description language).  When saved to
       an Ogg stream (the default behavior), a Kate stream may then be  merged
       with other Ogg streams (eg, a Theora video) using the oggz tools.


       -h     Show command line help.

       -V     Show version information.

       -r     Write raw Kate streams (experimental) rather than Kate-in-Ogg.

       -M     Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is
              used, strings such as "<i>" will be interpreted to mean italics,
              rather  than appear as such. Note that various players interpret
              a slightly different set of HTML tags, and some do not.

       -o outfile
              Write the output Kate stream to the given file name  (writes  to
              stdout if not specified).

       -l language
              Sets  the  language  for  the  stream  (default  is the language
              specified in the input, or none).

       -c category
              Sets the category  for  the  stream  (default  is  the  category
              specified in the input, or none).

       -s serial
              Sets  the  serial  number  for  the output Kate stream (does not
              apply to raw streams).

       -C tag=value
              Adds a comment to  encode  into  the  output  Kate  stream.  The
              comment  must  be  of  the  form  tag=value, and comply with the
              Vorbis comment rules (eg, tag is composed of a particular subset
              of  ASCII  characters,  and value is valid UTF-8). Note that you
              might have to escape or quote the comment for it to be seen as a
              single command line parameter.

       -t filetype
              Specifies the type of the input (srt, lrc, kate)

       -R threshold
              Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds).  Data
              packets will be  repeated  at  intervals  of  roughly  threshold
              seconds, while active.

       -K threshold
              Use  keepalive  packets,  with the given threshold (in seconds).
              Keepalive packets will be emitted when no other packet has  been
              emitted for roughly threshold seconds.


       Create a Kate stream for Welsh subtitles from a SubRip file:

           kateenc -t srt -l cy -c SUB -o output.ogg
