NAME

  dspcat - Displays all	or part	of a message catalog

SYNOPSIS

  dspcat [-g] catalog_name [set_number[message_number]]

OPTIONS

  -g  Formats the output so that it can	be used	as input to the	gencat com-
      mand.  You cannot	use the	message_number argument	with the -g option.

OPERANDS

  catalog_name
      Specifies	a file containing a message catalog. If	the file is not	in
      the current directory, dspcat searches for it in the set of directories
      specified	by the NLSPATH environment variable.  (For more	information
      about NLSPATH, see catopen(3).)

  set_number
      Specifies	a set in the catalog.

  message_number
      Specifies	a particular number in the specified set.

DESCRIPTION

  The dspcat command, part of the Tru64	UNIX Message Facility, displays	a
  particular message, all of the messages in a set, or all of the messages in
  a catalog.

  If you include all three command operands, dspcat displays a particular
  message. If you do not include message_number, all the messages in the
  specified set	are displayed.	If you specify only catalog_name, all the
  messages in the catalog are displayed. If you	specify	either an invalid
  message_number or invalid set_number,	an error message is displayed. You
  must include set_number if you include message_number.

EXAMPLES

  To display message number 2 in set number 1 of test.cat, enter:

       dspcat test.cat 1 2
