I’ve been working with GNU gettext utilities today to let a project I’m working on support multiple laguanges. Having originated in the Unix world Gettext is comprised of a lot of command line utilities that should be chained together to produce the desired result.
I found myself running ‘gettext –help’ and the like quite a lot and thought it would be nice to have all of those help messages in a nice HTML file to work with.
It didn’t take a long time to write this Python script that I’m sharing here that runs all the EXE files in a directory with the ‘–help’ command line option and gathers the output in an HTML file.
You can get the script here.
