porestructure takes the PO files output by poconflicts (a flat structure), and recreates the directory structure according to the poconflict location comments found in each PO message. After being restructured, the messages in the resulting directory structure can be merged back using pomerge.

Since poconflicts adds conflicting messages, from many different PO files, into a single PO file, the original structure of the files and directories are lost and the new PO files are output to a single directory. The original structure information is left in “(pofilter)” comments for each PO element.


porestructure [options] <conflicts> <po>


<conflicts> is a directory containing one the corrected output from poconflict
<po> is an output directory to write the restructured files to


--version show program’s version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--manpage output a manpage based on the help
 show progress as: dots, none, bar, names, verbose
 show errorlevel as: none, message, exception, traceback
-i INPUT, --input=INPUT
 read from INPUT in po format
-x EXCLUDE, --exclude=EXCLUDE
 exclude names matching EXCLUDE from input paths
-o OUTPUT, --output=OUTPUT
 write to OUTPUT in po format


The documentation for poconflicts has Examples for the complete process using poconflict, porestructure, and pomerge.
