NAME

Log::Report::Lexicon::MOTcompact - use translations from an MO file

INHERITANCE

 Log::Report::Lexicon::MOTcompact
   is a Log::Report::Lexicon::Table

SYNOPSIS

 # using a MO table efficiently
 my $mot = Log::Report::Lexicon::MOTcompact->read('mo/nl.mo')
    or die;

 my $header = $mot->msgid('');
 print $mot->msgstr($msgid, 3);

DESCRIPTION

This module is translating, based on MO files (binary versions of the PO files, the "Machine Object" format)

Actually, this module is not "compact" anymore: not trading off speed for memory. That may change again in the future.

To get a MO file, you first need a PO file. Then run msgfmt, which is part of the gnu gettext package.

   msgfmt -cv -o $domain.mo $domain.po

   # -c = --check-format & --check-header & --check-domain
   # -v = --verbose
   # -o = --output-file
